CATA'S NOTES

Profile:

Transparent and translucent garnet red color. The attractive nose is typical of Sangiovese: the pungent aroma of cherries. With aging in the bottle, this fresh, spicy cherry touch turns sweet and dry. In young wines, the fruit note is pure and of variable intensity from one vintage to another.
The body is fluid and dry: it is not an embellished, domesticated Sangiovese, but a wine as pure as its land. It has a fine and lively freshness and a delicious tannic persistence, which is felt without regret. A few years of aging will add much to this true and charming wine, which over time in the bottle will be enriched with hints of wild thyme and polished wood.

CHARACTERISTICS

About Wine

Rosso di Montalcino was recognized as an appellation of origin wine in 1983. As Montalcino is a land specially dedicated to the production of excellent wines, for the first time in Italy it has been granted the possibility of producing two appellations of origin from the same vineyards. .
Brunello destined for a long aging and Rosso di Montalcino with a fresher and more lively style. It can only be produced from Sangiovese grapes and can be marketed from the beginning of September of the year following the harvest.
Like Brunello, Rosso di Montalcino is an excellent expression of Montalcino tradition and terroir.

Behind the Label

The myth of Sisyphus represents the eternal work. If Brunello is the mountain, Rosso di Montalcino is Boulder. When making a great Brunello it is important to decide early which part of the vineyards will become Rosso di Montalcino. This process of separating young wine (red) from wine destined for aging (Brunello) is a process that is renewed every year and, therefore, it is a constant and vigilant work that is necessary to produce a great Brunello and Rosso.

 

CRITICS

The Castello Romitorio Rosso di Montalcino 2018 takes a long time to bloom in the glass, but it's worth the wait. A fabulous, understated display of cherry and strawberry mixed with dusty earth, roses, and hints of undergrowth expresses itself very well. Soft and silky textures flood the palate with ripe tannins and notes of blue fruit, sweet but perfectly contrasted by the saline minerality, along with notes of fine tannin that slowly rise towards the end. The finish is remarkably long, with notes of dried forest fruit, blueberry skins, and hints of violet flowers.  
Fabulous strawberry and cherry aromas continue to medium body with light tannins and a hint of cherry and orange peel. Ideal to drink now or keep for a few years.
