About the winery:
Castello di Romitorio is not only an impressive 12th-century fortress that towers over the hills of Montalcino, it is also one of the leading Brunello domains in the region. The castello is in the hands of 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 that time, Sandro was looking at the location choice of Sandro, namely the cooler, northwestern part of the region. Now it appears that he made an extremely smart choice at the time. Many wines from this exclusive Tuscan region nowadays suffer from high alcohol percentages due to the warm climate.
Romitorio wines, on the other hand, are always strikingly elegant and drinkable.
