The Castello Romitorio vineyards tend to be cool, both in terms of exposure and soils, and the estate shows its best results in a warm and sunny vintage exactly like 2015. You taste the natural richness and exuberance of the fruit, with variety-specific elements of wild cherry, blue flowers and soft earth. The house style prizes more width and latitude in terms of mouthfeel. That attractive medium to full-bodied style is achieved thanks to 24 months of oak aging. At the end of the day, the quality of the fruit is really what shines brightest here. Some 60,569 bottles were made, and the wine was released to the market in January 2020. collapse

A dense and rich Brunello with lots of ripe fruit, spices and hints of new wood. Full-bodied, chewy and rich. A muscular wine that needs time to come together. Better after 2022.

On the palate, it's soft, enveloping, almost creamy in texture and offset by a mix of savory spice, fine tannin and saturating mineral tones as black cherry and sage seem to hover on the senses. The finish is spicy and long, structured, but also with vibrant primary fruits holding on strong, as a twang of savory herbs lingers long. -- Eric Guido collapse

Wine Spectator, June 2020
Bright cherry and currant flavors signal this muscular red, shaded by mineral and underbrush accents. Compact and full of tension, this is long and commands attention on the finish. Best from 2023 through 2040. – BS

The beautifully restored castle dates back to Roman times and is surrounded by 17ha of vines amidst dense forest. This cool enclave lent refreshing acidity in the warm 2015 vintage. Immediately appealing vanilla, cherry, wild sage and sweet earth notes repeat on the palate, which is dense and concentrated. Fruit is on the lavish, plentiful side but purity is preserved.
