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.

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.

"Dark, brooding and geared for the cellar, the 2016 Castello Romitorio Brunello di Montalcino takes its time opening up in the glass, yet patience is rewarded, as a mix of blackberry and cherry further blossoms, adding crushed stone minerality with hints of sage, lavender and violets. It’s silky and textural upon entry, yet it firms up quickly through a mix of vibrant acids and saturating fine tannin. However, there’s plenty of density to its primary fruits, feeling almost weighty in this youthful state yet perfectly balanced all the same. Savory herbs and spice linger along with tart red berries on the long, structured and dramatic finish. The 2016 is full of potential yet needs time in the cellar to show its best. Drinking window 2024 - 2036." 95 pts, Eric Guido, Vinous

"The Castello Romitorio 2016 Brunello di Montalcino is a classic expression of the vintage, showing lots of ripe fruit, crushed mineral, herbal nuances and varietal-driven purity. This wine nails that sweet spot between elegance and power that is not easily achieved. It offers an expanded array of Sangiovese flavors with wild cherry, forest floor, crushed clove and medicinal herb, but it also shows plump density and a velvety texture. Filippo Chia and his team have created a sold wine for medium or long-term drinking. Production is exactly 58,874 bottles." 95 pts, Monica Larner, WA

"A well structured red with lots of dried mushrooms, oysters and crushed stones. Dried blueberries and herbs, too. It’s full-bodied with firm tannins. A little dusty on the finish. Let it soften. Drink after 2024." 94 pts, James Suckling
