Winemaker Notes

Castello Romitorio Brunello di Montalcino possesses strong structural properties fit for maturing and evolving over a period of time. This Brunello will grow finer with age although it is ready to drink upon release. Aged 12 months in medium toasted, fine grain, French oak Tonneaux and an additional 14 months in large Slovanian oak casks.

Critical Acclaim

WE 94
Wine Enthusiast
Black cherry, plum, smoke, bacon, leather and a drying touch of crushed mineral appear on the nose. This is a concentrated and rich Brunello with a bold, slightly sweet-smelling bouquet. The mouthfeel is compact, tight and polished—but there is excellent persistency too
JS 92
James Suckling
Aromas of blueberries and lemons, with hints of flowers. Turns to ripe raspberries. Full body, with firm tannins and fresh clean finish. Refined and pretty. Very bright acidity. Lively.
RP 92
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2007 Brunello di Montalcino Castello Romitorio emerges from the glass with crushed flowers, sweet red berries, licorice, spices and tobacco. The fruit gains freshness and energy as the wine sits in the glass. Sweet floral notes add lift and brightness on the articulate finish. This is a refined, mid-weight Brunello that impresses for its elegance and class. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2027.

Castello Romitorio Castello Romitorio Winery Image

Since 1984, the Castello Romitorio winery has been committed to the study, exploration and promotion of Brunello di Montalcino wine. This has been possible thanks to the work of Italian artist Sandro Chia, and his bond with Franco Martini, a Brunello di Montalcino expert and the cellar master of Castello Romitorio. This bond now continues between Sandro’s son Filippo and Franco’s son Stefano, the next generation.

The team has an intimate knowledge of the land and an immense respect for local heritage and tradition, which allows Castello Romitorio to express the essence of Brunello di Montalcino. The agricultural practices are low impact and take into consideration the nature that surrounds us. They interact with the indigenous flora and fauna in order to capture and develop the subtle nuances that exist in both the land and the vines they have the privilege to cultivate.

Famous for its bold, layered and long-lived red, Brunello di Montalcino, the town of Montalcino is about 70 miles south of Florence, and has a warmer and drier climate than that of its neighbor, Chianti. The Sangiovese grape is king here, as it is in Chianti, but Montalcino has its own clone called Brunello.

The Brunello vineyards of Montalcino blanket the rolling hills surrounding the village and fan out at various elevations, creating the potential for Brunello wines expressing different styles. From the valleys, where deeper deposits of clay are found, come wines typically bolder, more concentrated and rich in opulent black fruit. The hillside vineyards produce wines more concentrated in red fruits and floral aromas; these sites reach up to over 1,600 feet and have shallow soils of rocks and shale.

Brunello di Montalcino by law must be aged a minimum of four years, including two years in barrel before realease and once released, typically needs more time in bottle for its drinking potential to be fully reached. The good news is that Montalcino makes a “baby brother” version. The wines called Rosso di Montalcino are often made from younger vines, aged for about a year before release, offer extraordinary values and are ready to drink young.
