What the Critics say
The 2018 Castello Romitorio Rosso di Montalcino takes time to blossom in the glass, yet it is totally worth the wait. A pretty and understated display of cherry and strawberry mixed with dusty earth, roses and hints of undergrowth opens nicely. Soft, silky textures flood the palate with ripe red and hints of blue fruit, sweet yet perfectly contrasted by saline-minerality, along with hints of fine tannin that slowly mount toward the close. The finish is remarkably long, as notes of dried wild berries, blueberry skins and hints of violet florals linger. Drink: 2020-2026
A bright and expressive red wine produced in Montalcino from the estate’s youngest Sangiovese vineyards. The result is a classic Tuscan red that possesses all the grace and power associated with youth.
