Winemaker Notes

The bouquet is full and nearly endless, with fragrances of wild red berry melding into delicate notes of spice. The palate is complex, displaying impressive extractive depth and tannins that are dense, smooth, and glossy.

Critical Acclaim

JS 95
James Suckling
Wonderful purity of cabernet sauvignon fruit to this wine with blackcurrants, wet earth and pomace undertones. Full body, velvety and softly textured tannins and a long and flavorful finish. A wonderfully balanced Bordeaux blend of cabernet franc, cabernet sauvignon and petit verdot from the Tuscan hillside coastline. Drink or hold.
WS 93
Wine Spectator
A polished style, whose creamy texture envelops the plum, black cherry, tar and spice flavors. An element of bitter chocolate chimes in as this glides to the long, palate-saturating finish. Muscular and well-integrated overall. Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. Best from 2017 through 2026.
RP 90
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2011 Prima Pietra is comprised of Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. The wine offers bold spice aromas with generous layers of black fruit and plum at the back. The results are opulent and lush. This is a big wine with broad shoulders, a soft personality and integrated tannins.

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.

Legendary in Italy for its Renaissance art and striking landscape, Tuscany is also home to many of the country’s best red wines. Sangiovese reigns supreme here, as either the single varietal, or a dominant player, in almost all of Tuscany’s best.

A remarkable Chianti, named for its region of origin, will have a bright acidity, supple tannins and plenty of cherry fruit character. From the hills and valleys surrounding the medieval village of Montalcino, come the distinguished and age-worthy wines based on Brunello (Sangiovese). Earning global acclaim since the 1970s, the Tuscan Blends are composed solely of international grape varieties or a mix of international and Sangiovese. The wine called Vine Nobile di Montepulciano, composed of Prognolo Gentile (Sangiovese) and is recognized both for finesse and power.
