This Brunello di Montalcino is Castello Romitorio’s flagship wine and reflects more than 30 years of working in harmony with nature within the terroir of Montalcino. Owned by Italia artist Sandro Chia, his wines are quite literally works of art on both the inside and the outside.
There is something heady and invigorating about this: a lifted nose of oak and fruit with notions of Marasca cherry, violet and pomegranate. Earthy hints appear, too, as do nuances of sage and soy with increasing age.
The body has densely woven, firm but fine tannins, ac cording the wine a great structure; a skeleton upon which fruit, oak and aroma can express themselves fully.
The wine unfolds slowly in the glass, becomes more sinuous and sensuous with air while the gentle astringency of the tannins is very moreish. Bottle age brings welcome tertiary notes of leather and herb, both grip and aroma are long lasting. This is impressive upon release but even more true to itself with advancing age.
