Romitorio’s exquisite Brunello di Montalcino 2013 is a winner. This isn’t a shock, their wines are always spectacular and 2013 was a fabulous vintage for the region.
Described by the experts at Vinous Media as “the vintage we’ve been waiting for” and by critic James Suckling as a “fairy-tale vintage” and “a historical year for Brunello di Montalcino that nobody should miss”.
The Castello Romitorio winery takes its name from the Roman fortress that sits atop a hill surrounded by thick oak forest in Northwestern Montalcino. Abandoned in the 1950s, its rebirth as a winery occurred in 1984 when Artist Sandro Chia acquired the estate from his friend Baron Giorgio Franchetti.
Castello Romitorio, Brunello di Montalcino 2013 is full-bodied, opulent and rich and creamy in texture, it fills the mouth with vibrant cherry, wild strawberries, cornflowers, spices, dried herbs, gamey meat, sage, vanilla, mocha and forests after the rain. Although already startlingly impressive, given more time it will become increasingly leathery and herbal.
This rare red from Romitorio promises to be truly exceptional. Definitely one for the cellar.
