Opulent aromas of cherry, plum, dried meat and orange peel with some bark and cedar. Full-bodied with firm yet polished tannins that fill mouth and carry far down the wine to the end.

Full-bodied with firm yet polished tannins that fill mouth and carry far down the wine to the end. It’s creamy-textured and chewy. Purity and integration. Very drinkable now, but needs another two or three years to come around. Try after 2022.

This Riserva draws its fruit from an eight-hectare parcel with schistous galestro soils surrounded by thick forests and wildlife. Some 10,000 bottles were made. There is soft and rich cherry fruit at the core with light shadings of spice, cinnamon, tilled earth and a more sanguine tone of rust or iron ore. - Monica Larner

Wine Spectator, June 2021
A firm structural edge keeps macerated cherry, plum and underbrush flavors defined, while a lively acidity drives them to a lingering conclusion. Fresh and shows fine tension. Best from 2024 through 2045. – BS

Castiglion del Bosco

Situated within the UNESCO-listed Val d’Orcia Natural Park in the heart of the Brunello di Montalcino wine-making region, Castiglion del Bosco is a 5,000-acre resort and country estate with eight centuries of history. It is one of the founding members of the Consorzio del Vino Brunello di Montalcino created in 1967, and in 1972 was made a World Heritage Site.

Castiglion del Bosco is located in the northwest of Montalcino, where the rocky, nutrient-poor soils are perfect for yielding wines of superb structure and complexity. The estate holds 2,000 hectares of dense woods, meadows and organically-farmed crops, with 62 hectares of vineyard planted exclusively to Sangiovese.

The estate was purchased in 2003 by Massimo Ferragamo who began the restoration of both the architectural and winemaking facets of the estate. A new and modern cellar was built on two levels, with a capacity of 3,000 hectoliters.

Along with its Montalcino vineyards, Castiglion del Bosco owns a 10 hectare-estate called Prima Pietra in Riparbella, close to the Bolgheri wine area on the Tuscan coast. The vines enjoy abundant sun and ventilation, and the iron-rich, rocky soils ensure wines of superb structure. Bordeaux varieties of Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Petit Verdot planted at a density of 9,600 vines per hectare flourish in this terroir, producing wonderfully expressive fruit.
