SANT’ANTIMO ROSSO D.O.C. ROMITO
Sangiovese, Cabernet Sauvignon, Canaiolo Nero
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.
