Castiglion del Bosco

Castiglion del Bosco

Tuscany

A centuries-old story that of the Castiglion del Bosco estate in the heart of the Val d’Orcia: a real village that has lived and prospered over time thanks to an agriculture made up of vines, olive trees and various arable crops. From a viticultural point of view, however, with the progressive rise in temperatures, the position of this estate has acquired a certain strategic importance in recent years within the Montalcino appellation: the vineyards located in the North West guarantee a considerable temperature range for the grapes. (acidity, elegance) which now also acquire an additional alcohol content (muscles and structure) but without exceeding and jeopardizing correct maturation.
In 1967 Castiglion del Bosco was among the twenty-five founders of the Consorzio del Brunello di Montalcino, a free association created to regulate and protect the quality of this wine, which was among the first to obtain the DOC and DOCG.
Massimo Ferragamo, Salvatore’s son, acquired the entire property in 2003, placing it at the center of an ambitious relaunch project that sees the production of excellent wine flanked by a luxurious resort and an exclusive golf club.

In Castiglion del Bosco, the non-interventionist philosophy has long been married: interventions in the vineyard reduced to a minimum, manual grape harvesting and organic management, with a certification that arrived in 2016.
The winery completes the quality work carried out on the vineyards: the grapes are transferred by gravity into the tanks and each variety ferments separately, the refinement takes place in barriques and oak barrels. Here only Sangiovese grapes from the estate are processed with the aim of enhancing the two symbolic denominations of the territory: Rosso di Montalcino and Brunello (in three different interpretations), which reach qualitative heights of great elegance and refinement.

  • Castiglion del Bosco is one of the twenty-five founding members of the Brunello di Montalcino Consortium created in 1967.

    The reputation of this winemaker’s Brunello di Montalcino soon moved beyond the borders of the Val d’Orcia to establish itself internationally. In the glass it is of a ruby ​​red colour with a touch of garnet. The Capanna vineyard, located north-west of Montalcino, offers a complex, refined nose with notes of cherry, blackberry, blackcurrant, vanilla, cinnamon, balsamico, leather and spices. Initially apparently easy on the palate, it unfolds to reveal excellent structure; it is intense, soft, balanced, and has a moderate freshness.

    The finish is long and exciting in a way that only a young, aristocratic and introspective Sangiovese can be.

  • Riserva Milecento is a reference wine in the Montalcino scenario that has acquired more and more importance over time, supported by the quality of the project carried out with dedication and competence by the Ferragamo family.

    Produced with low-yielding grapes (about 50 quintals per hectare) carefully selected several times and harvested by hand in that green and uncontaminated area located north-west of Montalcino, Riserva Millecento is a blend of eight historic vineyards planted in 1998, whose grapes are harvested, vinified and then aged separately.

    A land with a predominant presence of marl contains medium-dense vineyards (5000 plants/hectare) positioned at about 400 meters above sea level. Vinified in steel with long macerations, this wine ages 36 months in French oak barrels of 30 hectoliters and then undergoes a further passage of 6 months in non-vitrified concrete, a peculiar solution that makes it even more unique in the local panorama.

    The 2015 vintage is notoriously of high quality despite of a climate that has put the winemakers to the test and enhanced their experience and ability. The heat peaks registered translate into a more powerful, muscular and warm style, with vigorous but not sharp nor excessive tannins, confirming the high quality of the grapes that have reached harvest and the great potential for aging.

    Elegant is a term that is well suited to a first tasting step: on the nose red fruits in alcohol such as cherry alternate with sweet spices like vanilla and cloves, then meeting tobacco and hints of cocoa. A great softness emerges on the palate, well balanced by a present acidity and integrated tannin within an overall good structure, with a particularly persistent finish which again recalls the red fruit present on the nose.

    Surprising for its harmony and elegant balance, Riserva Millecento gives its name to the wine club in Castiglion del Bosco estate (see the picture). Produced in a total of 8000 bottles within all the different formats (Magnum is our online exclusive), is  an oenological masterpiece hard to forget.

  • Here, on one-and-a-half hectares located about 450 metres above sea level, on the highest parcel of the Capanna vineyard with the best exposure (from which the Brunello di Montalcino that is the “basis” of Castiglion del Bosco comes), the Campo del Drago cru was born. It owes its name to the ditch located at the foot of the vineyard, which is in the shape of a dragon’s tail, but it owes its complexity and refinement to the perfect climatic conditions described above, the presence of marl in the ground and a winemaking process, maturation and ageing characterised by great patience, as the oenologist Cecilia Leoneschi has stated in an interview. In order for everything to run flawlessly, one must wait calmly for the product to complete each phase of the process: 20-25 days of fermentation in steel tanks, about two years of maturation, partially in barriques and partially in 30-50 hectolitre barrels, and a further six months in cement.

    As we know, 2016 produced a five-star vintage for Brunello. In the vineyards of Castiglion del Bosco, too, the climatic conditions were ideal for a perfect ripening of the grapes.

    The result is a wine with great structure and personality that delights the nose with notes of undergrowth and dark berries, while on the palate it surprises with acidity and minerality. A clearly present and refined tannic texture accompanies the gustatory-olfactory pleasure with great persistence and foreshadows wonderful ageing capacity.

  • Rare is an adjective that applies to what is hard to find and which, consequently, has the characteristic of being in demand, sought after, coveted. The numbers help the full understanding of this concept by providing a scale that measures how limited a specimen is with respect to the total of such specimens. The rest, in such case, is done by the Ferragamo family: with the creation of the Zodiaco Collection since 2013, an annual event is created to honour the Chinese horoscope by dedicating a limited and indeed rare edition of Brunello di Montalcino to one of the animals that make up the 12-year cycle, a reference for the Chinese society playing a much greater importance than in the Western tradition. Every year a famous Chinese contemporary artist creates and signs a unique label applied on the few bottles that Castiglion del Bosco releases to the public through dedicated channels and that collectors from all over the world compete for. Brunello di Montalcino Riserva 2013, signed by Aaron Gan, is made available in 2020, the year of the Rat, in only 688 magnums. The gentle watercolor brushstrokes represent grapes as a symbol of abundance, while the mouse, with its gaze turned upwards, symbolizes hope for a better future. Son of a cool and rainy vintage for many months of the year, then counterbalanced by a hot summer that brought the Sangiovese grapes manually selected from the most suitable vineyards of the estate to perfect ripeness, Zodiaco speaks the language of the territory made of a strong presence of marl which brings a pleasant mineral boost. It is a wine with character, with a strong personality and which ennobles the most positive traits of the 2013 vintage, resulting fresh on the palate but still broad on the nose, ranging from ripe red fruit also preserved in alcohol to citrus notes, sweet spices and of course minerals. The tannins are robust and give thickness to the wine, guaranteeing a long bottle life so as to smooth out some still sharp edges or delighting tasters loving the powerful drink before ending with an elegantly persistent finish. Zodiaco 2013 is not only a great wine but a real work of art in a limited edition that Winefully is honored to be able to offer exclusively for Italy.
