CASTELLO ROMITORIO
Italy
Castello Romitorio winery is made up of three separate properties of which the flagship is the 187-hectare estate in Montalcino, Italy. The two other properties are: Poggio di Sopra with 8 hectares of vineyards, also in Montalcino and Scansano with 11 hectares of vineyards. Castello Romitorio is owned by the renowned artist Sandro Chia, who spent years carefully restoring the property after acquiring it in 1984, with art and wine being created simultaneously and inseparably one from the other. The Chia family’s winemaking philosophy has evolved into a strict adherence to the pursuit of excellence at any cost and an absolute belief in quality over quantity. This philosophy has led the family to embrace only the great D.O.C.G.’s and D.O.C.’s of the estates. The best example of this is the 2006’s 3000 square meter cantina located within the castle. The cantina unites the two great interests of wine and fine art in a totally unique and fascinating setting. Monolithic sculptures stand next to barrels and barriques from which the Castle’s wine flows. Chia in fact says that the wine is meant to reflect the owner’s dedication to artistic perfection.

This wine is the result of blending Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah and Petit Verdot in equal parts. Its ruby red colour is vivid and intense. Pleasant to the nose and well-ballanced, it radiates a perfume of small red fruits and crushed rose petals. Upon the palate, red-ripe fruits and sweet spices, balsamic hints and a sugared coffee retro-taste combine perfectly with the delicate, fine tannins. Of sound structure and complexity, it is also a wine of long and soft persistence.

Dark raspberry fruits and just a hint of saddle on the nose. On the palate strong earthy (that typically appears in the wine blended Sangiovese) and savoury tones including sweet redcurrants and raspberry fruits combine nicely with mouth drying dusty tannins. As the components of the wine take shape, a synergy of flavors and textures is released that beautifully complements most savoury foods. Balanced and soft this wine retains a distinct taste of tradition.

It possesses a deep ruby red color, and a soft richness that balances its fresh bouquet. It spends its first year maturing in oak, lending it some complexity for further aging. Once bottled it will comfortably mature over the next three to five years, growing still finer and more elegant.
