A rich and dense red with dried and fresh berries and chocolate that follow through to a full body, soft tannins and a juicy finish. Drink or hold.

90 Wine Spectator

"A mix of black cherry, plum, earth, iron and sanguine aromas and flavors define this round, supple red. Stays fresh and there is adequate grip on the lingering finish. Sangiovese. Drink now through 2024. 250 cases made, 100 cases imported. — BS"

Product Description:

"Romito was the first ever wine produced by Sandro Chia at Castello Romitorio in the early 1980s, and is a true synthesis between innovation and tradition. Made from Sangiovese grapes, and aged in French oak barrels, Romito has become a cult classic for lovers of the Tuscan terroir. Romito translates as Hermit, a name that was chosen in recognition of the early inhabitants of the Castello Romitorio, which translates as Castle of the Hermitage.

Ruby red in color with beautiful dark fruit flavors, including plums, blackberries and hints of crushed raspberries. Dynamic and extremely pleasant to drink, this is a full-bodied wine that offers soft tones, elegance and warmth. The round tannins build on the palate, bringing texture and style to the wine, and the bright acidity ensures a long and fruity finish." - Winery
