Set in the heart of a UNESCO listed natural park , the Castiglion del Bosco estate is one of the most prominent producers in Montalcino. With an extensive history dating back to 1100 AD, this 1,800 hectare estate is famed for its beauty as well as its splendid wines. In 1902 the then owners of the estate, the Biondi brothers, began to receive international accolades for their wines; it comes as no surprise therefore that in 1967 Castiglion del Bosco was a founding member of the Brunello di Montalcino Wine Consortium in addition to being one of the earliest Italian wines to earn DOC and DOCG status.

The next phase of Castiglion del Bosco’s history came in 2003, when Massimo Ferragamo purchased the estate and began the restoration process for many of the historic villas. The winemaking, as well as the vineyards and facilities, was modernised, with the new 3,000 hectolitre capacity winery being built in 2004. The Castiglon del Bosco grapes are selected from the Estate’s south facing Capanna vineyards, located 350 meters above sea level. The terroir is characterised by clay shale, gravel-pebble and of course ‘galestro’, the famed terroir found in the best Tuscan vineyards, which provide the wine’s unique aroma, complexity and structure. The wine is vinified 100% in their cellar, which is completely gravity fed. All grapes are sorted by hand, before fermentation begins with natural yeasts. After malolactic fermentation the wines are transferred into French oak barriques, 20% new and 80% first and second passage for 36 months. Worldwide recognition for the excellence of Castiglion del Bosco’s wines continues to this day yet still offer some of the very best value in Brunello.
