Castiglion del Bosco
While winemaking at Castiglion del Bosco has been a craft for centuries, until fairly recently the vineyards were cultivated solely for personal consumption by each family living on the estate. As one of the founding members of the Consorzio del Vino Brunello di Montalcino, the organization that regulates and controls the quality of Brunello production, Castiglion del Bosco introduced the world to its exemplary vintages through the emergence of the commercial operation in the late 1950s. In 2004, acclaimed international Wine Master Nicolo D’Afflitto took command of winemaking at Castiglion del Bosco, along with locally trained enologist Cecilia Leoneschi.
A pleasant, modern wine, that represents a fresh and well-rounded expression of the Sangiovese grape. Its intense varietal aromas are the result of a combination of traditional and modern techniques in the cellar.
Our top-of-the-range red is an extremely elegant, complex expression of the Sangiovese grape. It comes from grapes from the Capanna vineyard, characterized by an excellent exposure and optimum soil and climactic conditions. This wine has great power and personality, and represents a perfect combination between tradition and innovation.
This wine is composed predominantly of Merlot grapes and aged in barrels for a period of six months. A complex wine full of fruit and spices, full and round on the palate.
