Made in limited numbers, the 2012 Brunello di Montalcino Filo di Seta is a commanding wine. With just 4,000 bottles produced, it reflects the extreme power and depth that can be achieved at this cooler Montalcino microclimate. The 2012 vintage was hot and dry, thus creating ideal growing conditions for Castello Romitorio's fruit. Vineyards here are panted on steep slopes and surrounded by thick forest and vegetation. In fact, you can't help but notice a wild and brambly element to this wine that recalls forest floor, truffle and autumnal leaf. These pretty accents add complexity to the wine's solid core of dark fruit. The mouthfeel is polished and tight and not without power. (ML)
A big and rich wine showing the ripeness of the vintage with a full body, hints of jam and new wood. Long and chewy finish. Needs time to come together. Fruit-forward style. Drink now.
Aromas of red berry, espresso, underbrush and French oak lead the nose along with a balsamic note. The bright, sleek palate evokes wild cherry, crushed raspberry, pipe tobacco and licorice alongside tightly knit, fine-grained tannins that lend refined support. Drink 2020–2028. (KO)
