"WHOA! Incredible complexity and the finish goes for days!"
Wine Advocate
93+/100

Fortune favours the bold, and this is no exception. This beast of a Super Tuscan comes from the Brunello powerhouse, Castello Romitorio. Don't be fooled, previous vintages of this wine were named Il Toro but it's the same dedication and craftsmanship with a facelift.  

Not for the faint of heart, it's no coincidence the label has a feisty bull portrayed on the label. If you've ever watched a bullfight, you know the tension and the dance that is involved. You'll find that same excitement here. This finessed and elegant 50/50 blend of Syrah and Petit Verdot is a perfect storm of flavour and structure. 

This wine is young and bullish but throw it in the cellar for a few years or give it a hearty decant, and there will be nothing better to pair with a perfectly seasoned rib-eye....

"Black currant black cherry blackberry liquorice black pepper charcoal forest floor. Dense and concentrated. French varieties under warmer Tuscan conditions runs full ripeness of black fruit flavours. Well integrated alcohol goes well with rich opulent body but all is underlined by form fresh acidity. Great food pairing wine." Lukasz W. 

"Revisited this lovely powerhouse Syrah-Petit Verdot blend in our Castillo Romitorio tasting - great depth and body with lots of interesting dark fruit. Great wine!" Mike L. 

"Really solid with lots of complexity and body." Elliot R.

"The previous vintage of this wine carried the name Il Toro, but the wine has been renamed with this vintage. In archaic Italian, the name RomiTorò translates as Romitorio. The Castello Romitorio 2018 RomiTòro is made with equal parts Syrah and Petit Verdot, all aged in oak for 10 months. This edition opens to an inky dark appearance followed by a thick and succulent texture. It offers a certain firmness to the tannins and a thinner spot on the mid-palate that thickens quickly as the wine hits the palate. Dark plum, prune and blackberry emerge at the top. Lighter notes of spice, smoke and tar also appear. Pair this wine with your favorite steak dinner. Some 44,437 bottles were made. The wine was bottled in December 2019 and hits the market in February 2020. RomiTòro is one of the great value wines to emerge from Tuscany."
