Tales from the vineyard
Ruby red, intense and complex, with golden yellow hues or burgundy overtones like fiery rows of sunlit autumn vines. Castiglion del Bosco has kept faith with the land and grape varieties, reviving the art of the vineyard to create wine that is elegant and deeply rooted in local tradition.
The terroirs of the arid, breezy heights of Capanna and the wetter hills to the north around Gauggiole are captured in three different labels, each telling of soil rich in clay, sandstone and typical Tuscan marl. These elements nourish the Sangiovese grapes of the single-cru Campo del Drago DOCG, the Brunello di Montalcino DOCG and the Rosso di Montalcino DOC.
Castiglion del Bosco is a historic winery and the fifth biggest producer of Brunello di Montalcino, grown on sixty hectares of its vineyard. It was a founding member of the Consorzio del Vino Brunello di Montalcino back in 1967. The harvest, a two-stage hand selection process (unchanged since the 18th century), and barrel-aging in the 4,000 m2 winery are rituals supervised by our enologist Cecilia Leoneschi. Visits to wineries, vineyards and tastings are a wonderful experience to share.
