The Castello Romitorio Brunello di Montalcino is this wine producer's flagship wine and reflects more than 30 years of working in harmony with nature within the terroir of Montalcino. It is a wine that expresses the Montalcino territory with purity and embodies the finest aspects of the area’s longstanding tradition of cultivating world class Sangiovese.

The Romitorio estates has vineyards in the Northwest area of Montalcino. Our classic Brunello is produced with Sangiovese grapes carefully harvested and selected by hand on the sorting table, both before and after destemming.

Fermentation takes place in stainless steel tanks with an initial short period of cold maceration (below 20°C) on the skins for about 15-20 hours. This is followed by up to 24 days of maceration at a higher controlled temperature. Separation of the skins and the vino fiore starts around day 22 once the fermentation has finished. Once the must (vino fiore) is obtained, natural malolactic fermentation is allowed to occur.

The wine matures in oak for approximately 24 months, and after bottling the wine is aged in Castello Romitorio’s temperature-controlled cellars for approximately an additional 12 months before release.
