Castello Romitorio, which translates as ‘castle of the hermitage’, is located in the wildest and most secluded area of Montalcino. The castle was probably originally built as a monastery, but due to its remote location was considered a hermitage.
Romito was born from the desire to produce a wine that captures and expresses the spirit of the solitary hermits that once retreated here in search of deeper meaning.
Romito is not merely a wine, but also a concept and a way of thinking and being, and was first created in 1987 from the intention to make a great Sangiovese wine in Montalcino. It has been bottled under various appellations, first as a table wine, then a Sant’Antimo Rosso Doc, and finally as an IGT Toscana Rosso.
The label, which was drawn by Sandro Chia and was Castello Romitorio’s first, depicts a warrior standing in front of the castle holding a lance and defending the territory.
Ruby red in color with beautiful dark fruit flavors, including plums, blackberries and hints of crushed raspberries.
Dynamic and extremely pleasant to drink, this is a full-bodied wine that offers soft tones, elegance and warmth.
The round tannins build on the palate, bringing texture and style to the wine, and the bright acidity ensures a long and fruity finish.
