Brunello di Montalcino 2010 Castiglion del Bosco
Castiglion del Bosco is one of the oldest estates in Tuscany, located on the Via Francigena route to Rome, it has has a rich history. With 125 acres of vines, the property is perched on a hill looking down onto the surrounding valleys, and the vineyards have optimal exposure. It was one of the founding members of the Consorzio del Vino Brunello di Montalcino in the 1960's and it is believed that Ferrucio Biondi Santi resided there in the 1880's when he was isolating the Sangiovese clone that became Brunello. This estate prides itself on quality and respect for tradition. Winemaker Claudio Basla, from Altesino consults at Castiglion del Bosco and made this outstanding 2010. With rave reviews across the board James Suckling scored it 96 points and said "Fabulous aromas of oranges, peaches and mahogany follow through to a full body, with rich and chewy tannins and a long and flavorful finish. This is dense and tight and powerful. It is compressed and incredibly structured. Needs four to five years of bottle age to come out of it domancy."
