"A dense and rich Brunello with lots of ripe fruit, spices and hints of new wood. Full-bodied, chewy and rich. A muscular wine that needs time to come together. Better after 2022." 95 pts, James Suckling

"The 2015 vintage is a historical year for Brunello di Montalcino that nobody should miss. The wines show impressive precision of vivid fruit, fine tannins and freshness in acidity despite their ripeness and richness which makes them some of the most exciting in years." James Suckling

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.

"A dense and rich Brunello with lots of ripe fruit, spices and hints of new wood. Full-bodied, chewy and rich. A muscular wine that needs time to come together. Better after 2022." 95 pts, James Suckling

"There is something heady and invigorating about this: a lifted nose of oak and fruit with notions of Marasca cherry, violet and pomegranate. Earthy hints appear, too, as do nuances of sage and soy with increasing age. The body has densely woven, firm but fine tannins, ac cording the wine a great structure; a skeleton upon which fruit, oak and aroma can express themselves fully.
The wine unfolds slowly in the glass, becomes more sinuous and sensuous with air while the gentle astringency of the tannins is very moreish. Bottle age brings welcome tertiary notes of leather and herb, both grip and aroma are long lasting. This is impressive upon release but even more true to itself with advancing age." Anne Krebiehl MW
