Winemaker Notes

The estate of Castiglion del Bosco grows only Sangiovese, and its entire line of wines is an expression of the two local denominations: three different interpretations of Brunello and the Rosso di Montalcino. But winemaking rigor and Sangiovese are not the only voices of Castiglion del Bosco, since the winery speaks with an international voice as well.

94 Points, Robert Parker Wine Advocate

The Castiglion del Bosco 2016 Brunello di Montalcino is a fruit-forward expression with soft cherry, blackberry, tilled earth and a touch of sweet spice. This wine is made in an especially accessible style that prizes ripe fruit and oak aging (in both barrique and botte). Fruit comes from a 52-hectare vineyard with galestro schist and clay. The tannins are more evident here compared to the 2015 vintage; however, this wine is almost ready to go with beef tagliata topped with porcini mushrooms. Production is 130,000 bottles.
