Award-winning Castelli Martinozzi can boast a history dating back to 1373. The property has always cultivated vines and olive groves, even when it was a monastery. In 1892 they won their first prize for wine. Today, they receive many every year. The family-owned estate has 160 hectares of land, with 16 of them planted to vines. These are on a hill, up to 480 metres high, overlooking the Orcia Valley and near the town of Montalcino. It’s a fascinating estate, with carefully conserved evidence of many past activities – silkworm breeding, weaving, an oil mill, and also a granary and a smithy. Today, however, the team are very much focused on producing top quality Brunello. Aged for three years in barrel, this is a red to savour. Decant early.

Wild berry, crushed herb, new leather and truffle aromas emerge from the glass. The juicy, savory palate offers red cherry, crushed raspberry, licorice and a hint of grilled porcini framed in taut, polished tannins. Tangy acidity keeps it bright.

Blackberry and blueberry aromas with hints of cedar and sandalwood. It’s medium-to full-bodied with firm, very fine tannins and a bright, fresh finish. A little tight and reserved, but pretty and precise. Date: Oct 2020; Rating 95 Points; James Suckling
