James Suckling, 94 Points 

"Aromas of ripe berries and plums with some flowers and nutmeg follow through to a full body with round tannins and a juicy finish. Slightly chewy, but friendly and succulent. Excellent 2017, despite the dry growing season." 

Wine Advocate, 92 Points 

"The Castiglion del Bosco project is a dream created by Massimo Ferragamo of Italy's celebrated leather and fashion family. The property includes a state-of-the-art winery and a luxury hotel. The 2017 Brunello di Montalcino unfolds to reveal textbook aromas of black fruit and ripe cherry. For sure, the wine embraces a soft and contemporary personality with a good amount of fruit weight, oak spice and tannins. It registers 15% alcohol. The warm 2017 vintage brings out the softer, richer side of this Sangiovese from galestro soils." 

Decanter, 91 Points 

"Owned by Massimo Ferragamo since 2003, Castiglion del Bosco is an expansive property surrounded by forest in the far northwestern corner of Montalcino. As of 2016 the wines are certified organic. The 2017 harnesses all the sun and heat of the summer. Dripping with cherry compote, it is laced with vanilla, baked stone and dried florals. The palate is robust and somewhat rustic, with gritty grip and a warming finish. Lots of personality, if not the most elegant example. Drinking Window: 2023 - 2029." 

Wine Spectator, 90 Points 

"Rich, exhibiting cherry, plum and earth flavors. Firm tannins line the finish, adding lift and definition. At this stage, there is a light astringency, which leaves a chalky sensation. Best from 2024." 

Alcohol: 15%
