Castiglion Del Bosco Dainero Toscana 2015

Turn us over…we’re done. Wow! 93-POINT “Super-Tuscan” for $17??? How, we ask you, HOW…?

If you EVER get a chance to visit the Brunello region, GO VISIT this place. Castiglion Del Bosco is a LEGENDARY property. Astounding. Owned by Massimo Ferragamo (yup, THAT one), the estate has a deep history dating back some 400+ years and it was one of the founding members of the Consorzio del Brunello di Montalcino 25 years ago. It is truly a mind-blowing spot on this Earth, but hey, we are here to talk WINE. And what a wine!

Dark, intense and popping with intriguing blue fruits and roasted nuts, it’s a serious wine from a terrific vintage and it JUST hit our warehouse, hoorah hoorah! Lush and round, with a hint of earth and mocha, it satisfies all your basic cravings for Tuscan deliciousness! Did we mention 93 POINTS??! While it lasts…Have a killer weekend!

Brilliant ruby red in color, this finely-balanced wine releases intense notes of fruit and spice. It is full-bodied and well-rounded in the mouth, combining the power of the merlot with the freshness of the vineyard.

About The Producer

Castiglion del Bosco is one of the most prominent producers in Montalcino, both for the history of the estate and for its size, with 5,000 acres unchanged in the last 400 years. In 1967, when the Consorzio del Brunello di Montalcino was born, Castiglion del Bosco was one of its 25 founding members. This extraordinary property whose origin dates back to the 12th century was acquired by Massimo Ferragamo in 2003, who in turn totally restored the property to its original glory.
