“Lasting finish. Complex. Interesting.”

With well over 100 years of winemaking history, there’s no question that Castiglion del Bosco can create a first-rate Brunello di Montalcino. Arguably one of the finest of the 2013 vintage, this Brunello di Montalcino masterfully combines highly polished tannins, succulent acidity, dense texture, and a finish that’s seemingly limitless. This is a masterpiece for the vintage--a true stunner! Wishing we had more than a few cases...

About the wine

Castiglion del Bosco has been loved by critics for years and this vintage is no exception! The 2013 vintage for Brunellos has produced textbook wines. This vintage reminds us of why we love Brunello and their incredible aging ability. The waiting is hard part!

Castiglion del Bosco’s is no exception. The 2013 Brunello di Montalcino sings of rustic structure and a juicy complexity. Layered with sour cherries and tart berries, nestled against a strong arm of tannin and acidity. This Brunello captures all the romantic notes we love, even leading us on with what richness will develop after a few years of cellaring. If you are impatient like us, don’t worry, a hearty decant will surely get the ball rolling to shake off any tightness and showcase what this gem has to offer!

The rose petal and cherry character really come through. Full body, layered and spicy. Orange peel. Flavorful finish. Shows structure and intensity. I love the texture. Drink in 2019.

Luminous medium-dark red. The captivating nose combines sour red cherry, violet, coconut, tobacco, minerals and a hint of white pepper. Densely packed and youthful but very fresh and lively; this already boasts a silky texture and considerable early appeal owing to its noteworthy sweetness of fruit. Subtle notes of red berries, herbs, graphite and flowers carry through into the rising, very long, vibrant finish. A knockout Brunello that further confirms winemaker Cecilia Leoneschi’s talent at making exceptionally good, very classic Brunellos. I can think of very few wines in all of Italy that have improved more than Castiglion del Bosco’s over the last decade. Well done.

92 points, Wine Spectator
Shows intense, ripe cherry flavors, bordering on jammy, yet stays fresh, courtesy of the bright acidity and dense tannins. Young yet well-proportioned, with a lingering aftertaste of earth, graphite and tobacco. Best from 2022 through 2036. 7,500 cases made.

Here's a Brunello that will surely see a solid ten-year evolution. The 2013 Brunello di Montalcino offers excellent balance and carefully delivered power. Both characteristics help to fuel the wine's smooth momentum over the palate. Dark fruit, plum and dried blackberry appear on the bouquet. Those fruity tones are followed by spice, leather and grilled herb. Some 90,000 bottles were produced.
