Unspoiled nature, mix of Art and Winemaking

 

In 1984, Castello Romitorio was purchased by Italian painter and sculptor, Sandro Chia, and his works are displayed everywhere on the estate, providing a quirky, idiosyncratic character to this winery. And, as you can imagine, no prizes for guessing who is responsible for the artwork on the labels. He has invested a huge amount of time and money into producing excellent Sangiovese, with a new cellar coming into play from 2005. We’ve been struck by the constant desire to improve, there has been no difficulty in matching that 2010 which so wowed us initially. With the launch of their 2015 Brunello, due recognition has, quite rightly, arrived, with scores of 95+ across the board from journalists.

Brunello di Montalcino, Romitorio, 2013
It would seem a bit weird to declare this as our ‘house’ Brunello – who has a ‘house’ Brunello? Well, it would appear that we do!
