    Winemaker's Notes:

    The Tuscan climate regularly bestows on us the gift of excellent wine, but every so often fortune shows an extra measure of generosity. Only a careful selection of grapes from a truly exceptional harvest can produce a Riserva, and 2004 was just such a year. This wine presents itself in superlatives, with a tremendously deep and intense color. Its aroma reveals itself with beautifully ripe blueberry, and Fresh and dried roses—a bouquet that is subtle yet seductive. The wine opens on the palate with pleasant notes of cloves, Rose petals, and spices. Full-bodied, with fine and mature tannins and a long finish.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Offers a beautiful density of blueberry and blackberry fruit on the nose and palate. Impressive for its fruit structure and ripe tannins. Long and intense, with loads of new wood, but seems to hold together wonderfully. Best after 2012. 495 cases made.

    Castello Romitorio’s beautiful Riserva Brunello delivers ripe fruit notes with inky consistency and elegant mineral tones framed around a core of solid red fruit. The wine is supple and very polished with impressive persistency on the finish.

    The 2004 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva is a dark brooding effort that emerges from the glass with warm notes of mocha, spices, dark fruit, licorice and tar. Rich and voluminous, the wine blossoms on the palate with tons of depth. Sweet notes from the French oak appear on the finish, but everything about this wine is totally seamless and elegant. Though delicious today, the 2004 Riserva is sure to improve in bottle. Sweet tobacco, incense and fennel add complexity on the close. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2024.
