    Product description

    Castello Romitorio takes its name from the massive 12th century fortress that sits on top of a hill surrounded by deep oak forest in Northwestern Montalcino. Abandoned in the 1950’s, its rebirth as a winery occurred in 1984 when Artist Sandro Chia acquired the estate. The wines produced here are deep and refined with great complexity and are competing amongst the best Brunellos.

    Aged for at least 26 months in French and Slavonian oak. Red berry, crushed violet and tobacco aromas. The palate is smooth with a velvety texture well balanced with rich tannins. Great length. – DWM, September 2017.

    “The 2011 Brunello do Montalcino is a plush, fruit driven Sangiovese that reflects the best of its territory. … The bouquet reveals a pretty core of red fruit with background notes of spice, dried mint and basalm herb. The wine is rich and approachable in terms of tannic structure and the wine benefits from a tight vein of crisp acidity. Castello Romitorio is one of the few estates that has come ahead of the hot 2011 vintage.” – 93pts, The Wine Advocate, March 2016

    Italian still red wine from Montalcino in Tuscany Italy made with Sangiovese.

    Castello Romitorio winery is named after the massive 12th century fortress that sits on top of the hill surrounded by deep oak forest in north western Montalcino. Abandoned in the 1950’s, its rebirth as a winery took place in 1984 when Artist Sandro Chia acquired the estate. The restauration started immediately and the overgrown land surrounding the hill were planted with vines. In 2006, the winery broke ground on a new state-of-the art underground cellar completed in 2007.
