Brunello di Montalcino Castello Romitorio is what truly represents Romitorio: the fruit of more than thirty years of work in harmony with nature in the Montalcino terroir. This wine purely expresses the territory of Montalcino and embodies the best of the ancient local tradition of cultivating an excellent Sangiovese. The Romitorio company is located in the northwest quadrant of Montalcino where this classic Brunello is produced from Sangiovese grapes carefully picked and selected by hand on the counter, before and after destemming. The wine ages in oak for about 24 months and after bottling it is aged in the controlled-temperature cellars of Castello Romitorio for another 12 months or so before being put on the market.

"Here is a full-bodied Brunello with lots of dried fruit, orange peel and hints of spice. Full and velvety. Rich and opulent finish. Yet always in form. Drink in 2020." 94 pts, James Suckling

"Castello Romitorio delivers yet another excellent set of wines from Montalcino. The 2012 Brunello di Montalcino is hearty and dark with enough grit and concentration to pair with classic Tuscan cuisine including steak, game meat or smoked cheese. The mouthfeel is textured and rich. Vibrant fruit and dark tones of black currant, plum, spice and pipe tobacco characterize the bouquet. This is a contemporary Brunello that also flaunts its Tuscan roots and it authentic personality. It delivers on all of the promises you'd expect from a complete and classic Brunello." 93 pts, Monica Larner, WA

"Medium-dark red. The enticing nose of violets and red berries is complicated by hints of minerals. Then bright, juicy and firm, with noteworthy acidity providing clarity and cut to the fresh red berry and sour red cherry flavors. Long and vibrant on the finish." 91 pts, Ian D'Agata, Vinous
