Purchased by Massimo Ferragamo in 2003, Castiglion del Bosco, after major investment in the vineyards and winery, has been restored to its position as a leading Montalcino estate. Ferragamo also bought an 11 hectare estate, Prima Pietra, near Riparbella, north of Bolgeri in the Maremma. Locally trained oenologist, Cecilia Leoneschi, who has been working at the winery since 2003 oversees the vineyards and the cellar.
Striking ruby red in colour with excellent balance and finesse. This full-bodied, well-rounded wine releases intense notes of fruit and spice.
