Castiglion del Bosco Rosso di Montalcino 2006
It is a deep ruby red with dark purple reflections and has an intense bouquet of ripe fruit with notes of forest underbrush and spice. It is a dry, round and well-balanced wine with soft rich tannins that are consistent creating great length of finish.
Situated in the heart of Tuscany's Brunello winemaking region, Castiglion del Bosco is one of Tuscany's largest contiguous estates. As one of the founding members of the Consorzio del Vino Brunello di Montalcino, Castiglion del Bosco introduced the world to its exemplary vintages through the emergence of a 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 oenologist Cecilia Leoneschi. Under their careful direction, the Estate is yielding more modern Brunello that are attracting critical acclaim.
