Winemaker Notes

Complexity, superb structure, and an inviting, mouthfilling palate are the hallmarks of this Sangiovese. A garnet-flecked ruby red, it releases generous, emphatic fragrances classic to Sangiovese, developing a nearly endless progression notable for its beautiful balance.

Pair with stews, roasted meats and cheese.

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
JS 96
James Suckling
This shows pure and fresh fruit that many others don't have. Also, there are plenty of linear tannins. Precise and beautiful. Medium to full body. Persistent finish. Better in 2019.
WS 94
Wine Spectator
A bright, cherry-laced red, accented by iron, earth, tar and tobacco notes. Though lean and tight on the finish, this is lively, with a lingering aftertaste of cherry, tobacco and mineral. Best from 2019 through 2032.
RP 92
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The Castiglion del Bosco 2012 Brunello di Montalcino exhibits classic lines and aromas that are faithfully characteristic of Tuscany's Sangiovese grape. There's a wild or untamed element with forest berry, underbrush, wild mushroom, lavender, tar and licorice. Balsam herbs also appear with cola and grilled rosemary. There's a lot to keep your attention. The mouthfeel is more streamlined and slightly shorter compared to previous vintages. This seems to be a common trait in 2012 Brunello but it does not make too much of a difference in this case.
D 92
Decanter
Tightly-knit and still youthful, with enticing violet-suffused cherry aromas unfolding onto a tense yet free-flowing palate bristling with pronounced acidity and chalky, dry-edged tannins. Well-done.
WE 91
Wine Enthusiast
French oak, tobacco and exotic spice aromas emerge in the glass. The firm, full-bodied palate delivers dried black cherry, raspberry compote, vanilla and licorice flavors, framed by assertive but fine-grained tannins. Drink 2020–2027.

Castiglion del Bosco, Italy
Castiglion del Bosco Capanna Estate Vineyard Winery Image

Situated in the province of Siena where the renown area of "Brunello di Montalcino" is found, Castiglion del Bosco encompasses approximately 4,450 acres of land, 125 of which are vineyards with plans to plant 15 more acres. The farm is located between the historic towns of Buonconvento and Montalcino. Given the truly magnificent geographical position of the estate, perched on a hill looking down onto the surrounding valleys, exposure is optimal resulting in wines of excellent quality. These are very exciting wines, new and classic at the same time.

Castiglion del Bosco was the first to produce and bottle Brunello di Montalcino in the sixties and today represents one of the most important properties of this region. Plans are currently underway to produce new wines and expand the existing cellar. This estate prides itself on the highest level of quality combined with respect for tradition. Claudio Basla, from Altesino, also consults at Castiglion del Bosco insuring the same levels of quality that we have always enjoyed from that estate.
