Brunello di Montalcino Castiglion del Bosco comes from a careful selection of grapes from vineyards located in the Capanna area of the estate. The Capanna vineyards lie at an altitude of 350 meters above sea level facing south. The soil is characterized by the presence of clay shale and gravel-pebble, a terroir which is ideally suited to the production of Sangiovese. The influences of the sea are felt in this area with hot, dry summers and constant winds that remove moisture. The richness of the ”galestro“ stone in the soil gives the wine its unique aroma, complexity and structure.
The 2014 Brunello is a thrilling wine, fearless of expressing the finesse and elegance of a rainy but healthy vintage. Soil drainage, altitude, and ventilation of the Capanna vineyards reward this Brunello witha complete taste profile and a full, savory finish.
Excellent with stews, roasted meats and cheese.
91 James Suckling
"The oak is very assertive here and wrestles savory cedar, meat and spices into red plums. The palate has a juicy, tangy red fruit core and good upfront appeal. Drink this in the next six years."
91 Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
"Richly aromatic from the start, the 2014 Brunello di Montalcino offers deep, dark fruit that is amply supplemented by oak spice, tobacco and cured leather. I would argue that the wood influences appear even more prominent in a vintage like 2014 that saw a delicate and subtle quality of fruit to begin with. This Brunello is lean and polished in terms of mouthfeel with medium length and depth."
