Brunello di Montalcino 2012 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 "This shows pure and fresh fruit that many others don't have. Also, there are plenty of linear tannins. Precise and beautiful. Medium to full body. Persistent finish. Better in 2019." The Wine Advocate said "The Castiglion del Bosco 2012 Brunello di Montalcino exhibits classic lines and aromas that are faithfully characteristic of Tuscany's Sangiovese grape... There's a lot to keep your attention." and Wine Spectator just scored this 94 saying "A bright, cherry-laced red, accented by iron, earth, tar and tobacco notes. Though lean and tight on the finish, this is lively, with a lingering aftertaste of cherry, tobacco and mineral. Best from 2019 through 2032."
