RISERVA BRUNELLO DI MONTALCINO D.O.C.G.

APPELATION:
Brunello di Montalcino Riserva

REGION:
Montalcino, Tuscany

COMPOSITION:
100% Sangiovese

AGEING:
minimum 36 months in French and Slavonian oak

The Tuscan climate regularly bestows on us the gift of excellent wine, but every so often fortune shows an extra measure of generosity. Only a careful selection of grapes from a truly exceptional harvest can produce a Riserva, which in turn, is released in the 6th year after the harvest. This includes a minimum aging of 30 months in French and Slavonian oak barrels, and then additional aging in the bottle.

Its ruby-red colour is a deep reflection of light garnet. On the nose it radiates a powerful perfume of ripe, dark cherries along with hints of tobacco, vanilla, black pepper and liquorice. Rich and voluminous, the wine blossoms on the palate with deep tones of spices and dark fruit that combine well with the imposing tannins. This full-bodied Riserva reveals outstanding length that follows through to an incredible fresh and persistent lingering finish. Once ready to be drunk and enjoyed, it becomes further appreciated as a maximum expression of its origins, giving pleasure to the palate and delighting the eye whilst paying sublime homage to mother nature in its opulence and sobriety.

SANT’ANTIMO ROSSO D.O.C. ROMITO

APPELATION:
Sant’Antimo Rosso

REGION:
Montalcino, Tuscany

COMPOSITION:
Sangiovese, Cabernet Sauvignon, Canaiolo Nero

AGEING:
minimum 14 months in oak casks

The meaning of Romito del Romitorio  is the ‘Hermit of the Hermitage’. This wine is the first ever produced by Castello Romitorio, in 1986, and for this reason is subject to a scrupulous procedure comparable only to that given to our Brunello di Montalcino.

The colour is of an intense ruby red with delicate, garnet reflections. Elegant aromas of dried rose petal, ripe red fruit and balsamic oak notes open over a backdrop of medium intense spices. Its particular and well-balanced earth-notes represent a distinct expression of the Montalcino terroir: silky and quite velvety, chocolate and tar characteristics blending with dried fruit, juniper berry, and ripe, red fruit spices, together with round, full tannins, solid acidity, and a long, spicy finish.

I.G.T. ROSATO

APPELATION:
Toscana indicazione geografica tipica Rosato

REGION:
Montalcino, Tuscany

COMPOSITION:
100% Sangiovese

The grapes are gently destemmed, then left to macerate for approximately 5 hours -until the desired delicate onion pink colour is obtained – and then softly pressed. This liquid host is then passed into a stainless steel vat where a first filtration is made under cool controlled temperatures, and it is only after higher temperatures are applied that the fermentation takes place.
What results is a wine of long lasting finish with  delicate tones of rose and peony upon the nose whilst being fresh and mineral-like to the palate along with hints of raspberry and cherry.

Company details

History

The finest things in life are not always apparent and so it is with the Castello Romitorio winery which takes its name from the massive twelfth-century fortress that sits atop an imposing hill surrounded by a thick oak forest in North Montalcino. Its name suggests that the edifice has served multiple uses throughout its history including that of a fortress, as well as probably too, a Monastery, and being so remotely placed, as to seemingly blend into time and space.
Its rebirth as a winery occurred in 1984 when Artist Sandro Chia acquired the estate. The transformation of its overgrown lands into vineyards and the construction of a cellar began immediately.
