Castello Romitorio Brunello di Montalcino possesses strong structural properties fit for maturing and evolving over a period of time. This Brunello will grow finer with age although it is ready to drink upon release. Aged 12 months in medium toasted, fine grain, French oak Tonneaux and an additional 14 months in large Slovanian oak casks.
Black cherry, plum, smoke, bacon, leather and a drying touch of crushed mineral appear on the nose. This is a concentrated and rich Brunello with a bold, slightly sweet-smelling bouquet. The mouthfeel is compact, tight and polished—but there is excellent persistency too
The 2007 Brunello di Montalcino Castello Romitorio emerges from the glass with crushed flowers, sweet red berries, licorice, spices and tobacco. The fruit gains freshness and energy as the wine sits in the glass. Sweet floral notes add lift and brightness on the articulate finish. This is a refined, mid-weight Brunello that impresses for its elegance and class. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2027.
Aromas of blueberries and lemons, with hints of flowers. Turns to ripe raspberries. Full body, with firm tannins and fresh clean finish. Refined and pretty. Very bright acidity. Lively.
