Castello Romitorio Brunello di Montalcino 2004


SKU 14342


At Castello Romitorio, a near perfect harvest, has ushered in an impressive Brunello di Montalcino 2004. This wine possesses incredible structural properties fit for maturing and evolving over a long period of time. The Brunello will become finer over the next 10-15 years. Ruby red colour with a translucent golden edge. Wild roses, earth, and notes of tobacco explode into a myriad of intense, persistent, and broad flavours; distinct notes of small fruits such as blackberries, raspberries, and juniper gently coat the palette. Round and tight tannins caress the palette with a steady finish, which is at once forceful yet elegant.

Wine SpectatorBlackberry and dried flowers on the nose. Full-bodied, with soft and silky tannins and a long finish. Very approachable now, with bright fruit and fresh acidity. Long and beautiful. Drink now through 2015.

Wine EnthusiastCastello Romitorio delivers one of our favorite 2004 Brunellos. Managed by an artist-winemaker father and son team, the estate brings us a beautifully compact and elegant wine that is brimming with fresh fruit tones of cherry and blackberry. The mouthfeel is generous and soft with a luscious fruit-filled finish.

Wine AdvocateThe 2004 Brunello di Montalcino reveals a dark, brooding expression of black cherries, menthol, licorice and flowers. The wine possesses lovely detail and clarity, in a somewhat compact, firm style. With air the wine fleshes out nicely. A final floral note gives the wine a sense of lift on the finish. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2022.
