Rosso di Montalcino 2018
If you’ve been working hard all week, which can sometimes feel like the scenario depicted on this wine’s label, then you’ve earned an epic glass of red.
Dazzling cherry fruit, wild strawberries, dried thyme, orange peel and the leather and polished wood of antique furniture; Romitorio’s Rosso di Montalcino is at once clean and crisp, but also as wild and rustic as the land from whence it came. We love it with pizza, pasta or comfort food, then another glass with our feet up.
The imposing Castello Romitorio sits high on the hill in front of Montalcino. During its long history, which dates right back to Roman times, it has been a temple, a prison, a fortress, a monastery, a castle, a ruin, a manor house, a shelter for shepherds and, most recently, an art studio and winery. Once owned by a patron of the arts called Giorgio Franchetti, it was swapped with the artist Sandro Chia for some of his paintings. A leader of the Neo-Expressionist movement in Italy and a contemporary of Jean-Michel Basquiat, Chia used the castle as a studio. Also inspired by the winemaking revolution occurring in Brunello di Montalcino during the late 1980s, he was at the forefront of the region’s rebirth. Now an internationally recognised winery, Sandro and his son Filippo create elegant, classic and sought-after Sangiovese of the highest calibre.
