Romito Brun di Montalcino 2004
Tasting Notes: Romitorio Brunello di Montalcino offered the best Bang for your Buck! Sandro Chia, one of Italys most famous artists, purchased Castello di Romitorio in 1984. He spent the next few years restoring both the cellars and the vineyard. To ensure that the highest quality wines were being produced from the vineyards he enlisted the help of Italys top oenologist, Carlo Ferrini. Superb plum and berry with a seductive deep bouquet, full yet complex and elegant with very fine tannins and a spectacular finish.PRE-SELL
Castello Romitorio is located on a hilltop overlooking the Val d' Orcia and facing the township of Montalcino, in the provence of Siena. The castle, surrounded on three sides by thick oak forests, rests in the northwestern quadrant of Montalcino.
Lively garnet color. Rich nose of blackberry, raspberry, cherry and custard with distinct notes of cinnamon and clove. Generous and elegant on the palate, combining complex fruit with flavors reminiscent of autumn. Medium-to-full bodied with a long, dry finish. A great pair with ossobuco and roasts. Decant and serve at 18oC. Cabernet Sauvignon 20%, Cannaiolo Nero 20%, Sangiovese Grosso 60% 18 Months in french Remonde barrique. Top, Top quality wine from Montalcino. Maybe a super-tuscan? but far more delicate and interesting!
Incredible quality and finesse! A must have in your cellar...
