Only a truly extraordinary harvest can produce Brunello di Montalcino Riserva DOCG Castello Romitorio: from the beginning of its activity, the company has only produced a few vintages of the wine. The grapes are strictly selected by hand from the oldest vineyards of the company, which are located in the northern area of Montalcino. The wine ages in oak for about 36 months and after bottling it is aged in the controlled-temperature cellars of Castello Romitorio for about 24 months before being put on the market.

"This is the finest wine I have tasted from Sandro Chia's fairy tale Castello Romitorio. The 2010 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva is a stunning creation and it excels on any number of levels. The vineyards are now at their full potential and the winemaking team has amassed enough experience under its belt to show greater confidence in terms of its stylistic philosophy. I love the fullness and the generosity of the bouquet, and I relished in tasting those delicious layers of dark berry, spice, dried herb and dark chocolate. The mouthfeel is equally satisfying with opulent richness and impressive flavor persistence. Castello Romitorio has set a new benchmark." 97/100, Monica Larner, Wine Advocate

"So much black cherry, stem and dried mushroom aromas. Full body, ultra-fine tannins and a beautiful cherry center palate. Hints of chocolate, mahogany and cedar. Salted meat and ripe fruit, too. Very long and powerful. Wow. Great finish. Needs time to soften a little but so excellent. Better in 2017." 97/100, James Suckling
