ROMITORIO, Castellnuovo dell'Abate
Love at first sip and our most recent discovery in the region.
Abandoned in the 1950’s its rebirth as a winery occurred in 1984 when Artist Sandro Chia acquired the estate from his friend Baron Giorgio Franchetti. The restoration of ‘Castello Romitorio’ began immediately, followed by the transformation of its overgrown lands into vineyards, and the construction of a cellar on the Castle’s ground floor. Twenty years later in the year 2006, the winery broke ground on a new state-of-the art underground cellar, completed in 2007.
The wines from this estate, located in the upper reaches of Castellnuovo dell'Abate, exude elegance and tipicity. With an artist for an owner, expect creativity with the labels!
