About Brunello Di Montalcino 2015 Castiglion Del Bosco

97 points from James Suckling saying "Wonderful aromas of flowers, plums, terracotta and white pepper. Intense, yet ever so subtle. Medium to full body, firm and silky tannins and a long and intense finish. Shows excellent length. Drink after 2021." 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 2015. Limited!
