A delicious Rosso di Montalcino Riserva DOCG
Garnet red wine with a complex aroma of ripe red fruit (cherry, raspberry) supplemented with spices (clove, vanilla). The taste is pure, full and medium intense with fresh acidity and fine, spicy tannins in the long finish.
The Sandro Chia DOCG not to be missed!
Castello di Romitorio is not only an impressive 12th-century fortress that towers over the hills of Montalcino, it is also one of the region's leading Brunello domains. The castello is owned by the artist Sandro Chia. He bought the dilapidated estate in the 1980s and decided to restore not only the building, but also the vineyards.
At the time, the choice of location of Sandro, namely the cooler, northwestern part of the region, was looked at with an eye. Now it appears that he made an extremely smart choice. Many wines from this exclusive Tuscan region nowadays struggle with high alcohol percentages due to the warm climate.
Romitorio wines, on the other hand, are always remarkably elegant and drinkable. This also applies to the Rosso, sometimes affectionately referred to as Brunello's little brother. Like Brunello, Rosso di Montalcino is also made from 100% Sangiovese.
Rosso's maturation time is however much shorter, making the wine more accessible and faster to drink. This beautiful, classic Italian with its ripe tannins is an excellent food wine. For example, drink it in combination with roasted meat, hearty pasta or polenta dishes.
Refined, oak-aged red wine with a medium intense flavor structure that combines beautifully with spicy pastas and spicy casseroles.
