Description

The complexity and beauty to this is really something with cherry, walnut, tobacco and cigar-box character. Sweet cherries. It’s full-bodied and deep with super intensity and power. Layered and beautiful. Really refined tannins. Some whole-berry fermentation gives this added character. Goes on for minutes. Try after 2025. (99/100 points James Suckling)

Producer Information: Castiglion del Bosco

Castiglion del Bosco Brunello di Montalcino comes from the Capanna vineyard, located in the north-west part of Montalcino. The unique characteristics of this plot are its natural isolation,
its altitude and the Galestro rock soil that make wines with refined elegance and enchanting perfume. Fermentation took place in stainless steel tanks at a controlled temperature of 28°C
and the wine was matured in French oak casks (30-50hl) and barriques for 24 months. A fine Brunello produced from grapes grown at 350-460 metres above sea level, in the spectacular
‘Capanna’ vineyard, which covers 42 hectares facing south/south west towards the Tyrrhenian coast.
