Product Description

Only a truly extraordinary harvest can produce the Castello Romitorio Brunello di Montalcino Riserva DOCG. Since its establishment in 1984, Romitorio has released only a handful of vintages of this wine. Undeniably elegant and complex. Wild strawberry, blackberry, smoke, savoury spices, herbal. This wine has so much to offer. Sangiovese at its highest expression with vibrant fruit, noble tannins and an extra degree of maturity.

The production begins with a careful selection of grapes from the estate’s oldest vineyards, located in the Northern zone of Montalcino. Each vineyard block is monitored throughout the vegetative process, blocks are chosen and each cluster is carefully tended in order to ensure that the fruit reaches a consistent and optimal ripeness. The Sangiovese clusters are then harvested meticulously by hand. Each vineyard block is then vinified separately. Fermentation takes place in stainless steel tanks with an initial short period of cold maceration (below 20°C) on the skins for about 15-20 hours. This is followed by up to 24 days of maceration at a higher controlled temperature. Malolactic fermentation that is naturally occuring then lasts for about 10 days. The wine matures in oak for approximately 36 months, and after bottling the wine is aged in Castello Romitorio’s temperature-controlled cellars for approximately 24 months before release.
