$65.00 $65.00

Vinous describes the 2016 Brunellos as “a well-muscled black stallion in its prime…. dark yet radiant, expressive, nearly explosive at times, yet pure, poised and structured.” The vintage marks the second epic year in a row for Brunello, and top producers like Castello Romitorio excelled. Their team has an intimate knowledge of their land and immense respect for tradition, which acts as the perfect vessel for expressing Brunello’s essence from their remarkable Estate.

Castello Romitorio has Italian history embedded in its DNA. The Estate dates back to the Middle Ages and is ideally positioned northwest of Montalcino’s town. The vineyard has soils composed of clay and Albarese, from which fossils and shells emerge, evidence of an ancient coastal seabed.

The winery’s flagship Brunello powerfully reflects the Estate’s history and is magnified by the superb vintage. The team that produces it hand sorts each berry before and after destemming. They ferment slowly for 20 days, which contributes to the dark color and power of this wine. After maturing for 24 months in oak and a year in the bottle before release, this wine is ready to make you smile.

Description

2016 CASTELLO ROMITORIO BRUNELLO DI MONTALCINO

“The Castello Romitorio 2016 Brunello di Montalcino is a classic expression of the vintage, showing lots of ripe fruit, crushed mineral, herbal nuances and varietal-driven purity. This wine nails that sweet spot between elegance and power that is not easily achieved. It offers an expanded array of Sangiovese flavors with wild cherry, forest floor, crushed clove and medicinal herb, but it also shows plump density and a velvety texture…”

“Dark, brooding and geared for the cellar, the 2016 Castello Romitorio Brunello di Montalcino takes its time opening up in the glass, yet patience is rewarded, as a mix of blackberry and cherry further blossoms, adding crushed stone minerality with hints of sage, lavender and violets. It’s silky and textural upon entry, yet it firms up quickly through a mix of vibrant acids and saturating fine tannin. However, there’s plenty of density to its primary fruits, feeling almost weighty in this youthful state yet perfectly balanced all the same. Savory herbs and spice linger along with tart red berries on the long, structured and dramatic finish…”
