Palate Profile

Only a truly extraordinary harvest can produce the Castello Romitorio Brunello di Montalcino Riserva D.O.C.G.: since its establishment in 1984 Romitorio has released only a handful of vintages of this wine. A rigorous selection of grapes is made from the estate’s eldest vineyards located in the Northern zone of Montalcino. Each vineyard block is monitored throughout the vegetative process, blocks are chosen and each cluster is carefully tended in order to ensure that the fruit reaches a consistent and optimal ripeness.

Critic Awards

Castello Romitorio has cool vineyard sites and is one of the few estates that performs consistently in the warmest years. That's why the 2012 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva is just so darn good. There is finesse here, but you also get bold cherry fruit, moist earth, cured tobacco and grilled herb. Mouthfeel is silky and smooth, with good acidity.

This is a Brunello with a beautiful purity of fruit and balance of ultra-fine tannins. Full body, totally integrated and holistic. Fresh and focused. Drink in 2020 but already a joy to taste.

Fine harmony and richness meld with the cherry, plum and leather flavors in this fluid red. Shows the structure for mid-term aging, offering light grip on the tobacco-laced finish.
