Castiglion del Bosco Brunello di Montalcino 2018

$69.00

Castiglion del Bosco was the first to produce and bottle Brunello di Montalcino dating back to the early 1960’s and today, it represents one of the most important properties of this region. Plans are currently underway to produce new wines and expand the existing cellar. This estate prides itself on the highest level of quality combined with respect for tradition.

Ideally located in the province of Siena where the renown area of “Brunello di Montalcino” is found, Castiglion del Bosco is a sprawling estate that encompasses approximately 4,450 acres of land, 125 of which are vineyards with plans to plant 15 more acres. The farm is located between the historic towns of Buonconvento and Montalcino.

Every year, these are amongst the highest quality Brunelli coming out of Tuscany, and in the 2018 vintage, this is no exception. Just as Parker’s Wine Advocate stated to start their review, I found this one to be “robust and powerful” right from the very first sip. This is a beauty that I would expect should age gracefully for the next 15-20 years, no problem

Expert Reviews

93 Points, James Suckling
Ripe berries and hints of red licorice and herbs on the nose, following through to a medium-bodied palate with fine, tightly packed tannins and a taut finish for now. Give it two years to unwind a bit. Try from 2025.

92 Points, Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate
Robust and powerful from the start, the Castiglion del Bosco 2018 Brunello di Montalcino shows broad shoulders and ample brawn. But at the end of the day, the wine’s concentration remains on the medium to medium-rich side of the spectrum. It stays firmly within the boundaries of Sangiovese. Dark fruit and blackcurrant segue to savory notes of toasted spice, black olive, earth and rusty nail.
