The Character

Tasting Notes As a Riserva this has already had ample time to become itself, to show its honest soul: we find rugged soil, icy winters and warming sunshine, we find wilderness and something epic that years cannot smudge or alter. It is muscular and strong. This wine just is. The warming alcohol counters the incisive acidity, the tannins, enmeshed and resolving, still have their drying, unrelenting streak. Dried notes of Marasca cherry still shimmer. With increasing age the savory elements increase: more salt, more herbs, more soil.

The Story

Only a truly extraordinary harvest can produce the Castello Romitorio Brunello di Montalcino Riserva D.O.C.G.: since its establishment in 1984 Romitorio has released only a handful of vintages of this wine.

Brand Story

Sandro Chia may have purchased the abandoned castle for which this estate is named in 1984, yet its foundation can be dated back over a millenia to the romans. The castle stood through state disputes, the turbulent middle ages, and Italy's reunification before Chia partnered with his friend Franco Martini, a predominant expert in Brunello and the cellar master. Their sons, Filippo and Stefano, now work at the winery and represent the coming generation. This is Avant Garde style melded with rich history.
