    Wine Advocate Notes
    95 Points, Monica Larner, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The Castello Romitorio 2016 Brunello di Montalcino is a classic expression of the vintage, showing lots of ripe fruit, crushed mineral, herbal nuances, and varietal-driven purity. This wine nails that sweet spot between elegance and power that is not easily achieved. It offers an expanded array of Sangiovese flavors with wild cherry, forest floor, crushed clove, and medicinal herb, but it also shows plump density and a velvety texture. Filippo Chia and his team have created a sold wine for medium or long-term drinking. " 11/20
    Vinous Media
    95 Points, Eric Guido, Vinous: "Dark, brooding and geared for the cellar, the 2016 Castello Romitorio Brunello di Montalcino takes its time opening up in the glass, yet patience is rewarded, as a mix of blackberry and cherry further blossoms, adding crushed stone minerality with hints of sage, lavender and violets. It’s silky and textural upon entry, yet it firms up quickly through a mix of vibrant acids and saturating fine tannin. However, there’s plenty of density to its primary fruits, feeling almost weighty in this youthful state yet perfectly balanced all the same. Savory herbs and spice linger along with tart red berries on the long, structured and dramatic finish. The 2016 is full of potential yet needs time in the cellar to show its best." 11/20
    James Suckling Notes
    94 Points, James Suckling: "A well structured red with lots of dried mushrooms, oysters and crushed stones. Dried blueberries and herbs, too. It’s full-bodied with firm tannins. A little dusty on the finish. Let it soften. Drink after 2024." 11/20
    Wine Spectator Notes
    94 points, Bruce Sanderson, Wine Spectator: “A core of pure black cherry marks this compressed red, which is fresh and balanced in its rigid way, with wild thyme, rosemary, iron and tobacco flavors. The aftertaste lingers with the fruit and balsamic elements. Best from 2025 through 2048.” 03/21
    International Wine Reviews Notes
    95 Points, Raffaele Vecchione, International Wine Review: “This young expression of Brunello is very soft and slightly snobbish in the main profile that is sweetly presented in the notes of pomegranate, rhubarb, bergamot in drops and chamomile in bloom. Full body, velvety fine-grained tannins and a finish perfectly in line with the beauty of the fresh and Mediterranean vintage. Better from 2021.”

    94+ points, Luca Gardini, Gardini Notes: “Another great interpretation by this winery that results from Sandro Chia’s vision. Great nose showing clear aromas of alcohol-infused marasca cherries and fresh raspberries. In the background, a pleasant note of undergrowth with balsamic hints. Taut and crunchy mouth, sapid tannins and long persistence.”
