The eponymous 'Romitoro' (formerly known as Il Toro) is an elegant blend of Syrah and Petit Verdot that expresses the benefits of a moderate climate such as Tuscany’s, where vines grow naturally without needing irrigation and yield an excellent quantity and quality of fruit. The resulting wine is a bold Super Tuscan that attests to the fact that French varietals can thrive in Tuscany and give exceptional quality, whilst retaining an undeniably Tuscan character.

This wine is aged for approximately 12 months in oak and is unfiltered.

Ratings & Reviews


93+ Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
"The Castello Romitorio 2018 RomiTòro is made with equal parts Syrah and Petit Verdot, all aged in oak for 10 months. This edition opens to an inky dark appearance followed by a thick and succulent texture. It offers a certain firmness to the tannins and a thinner spot on the mid-palate that thickens quickly as the wine hits the palate. Dark plum, prune and blackberry emerge at the top. Lighter notes of spice, smoke and tar also appear. Pair this wine with your favorite steak dinner. RomiTòro is one of the great value wines to emerge from Tuscany." - Monica Larner (31st Jan 2020)

93 Points - James Suckling:
"Cherries and blackberries with some floral and walnut character. Medium-bodied with firm, silky tannins and a delicious finish. Easy to appreciate the polish and finesse to this. Give it a year or two to come together. Try after 2021." - (23 Jul, 2020)

92 Points - Vinous Media:
"The 2018 Romitorio Toscana is fresh and lifted on the nose – unexpectedly so, showing smoky cherry and citrus-tinged blackberry with savory herbs. On the palate, silky textures contrast spicy raspberry fruit, as saline-minerals and zesty acids add grip under an air of inner violet florals. The finish is long, showing saturating red berry tones and hints of youthful tannin. This blend of Syrah and Petit Verdot is already rocking, yet a few years of cellaring should reveal even further depths." -Eric Guido (Jun 2020)
