95pts James Suckling

Subtle cherry, orange-peel and floral notes on the nose. Medium body, firm tannins and a long, fresh finish. Shows intensity and structure with length. Linear and fresh. Minerally. Try after 2023.

93pts Wine Spectator

Fresh and focused, delivering cherry, strawberry, peony, tobacco and stony mineral flavors. This red is supported by a firm structure, whose tannins are refined and well-integrated. Fine length. Best from 2025.

93pts Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

If you consider all the glorious vineyard sites in Montalcino, Campo del Drago must be one of the most beautiful. The vines sit on a flat plateau surrounded by wild forests with views that extend south all the way to the Tyrrhenian Sea and the sleepy farming town of Grosseto. The site is just spectacular, and cooling elevations reach 430 meters above sea level. The mid-weight 2017 Brunello di Montalcino Campo del Drago reflects the sun-drenched nature of its namesake vineyard with ripe cherry, plum cake and mild oak spice.

92pts Wine Enthusiast

New leather, truffle and pipe tobacco aromas waft out of the glass. Full-bodied and enveloping, the smooth, accessible palate offers ripe black cherry, fleshy plum and licorice accompanied by velvety, close-grained tannins. Drink through 2027.

92pts Wine & Spirits

A spot of rain in early September helped mitigate the hot and arid conditions of the 2017 growing season at this estate in the northwestern sector of Montalcino, and that restraint shows in the high-toned aromas and flavors of this single-cru wine. Scents of wild herbs and rose petals lead into flavors of red cherry and cassis, those red fruit tones taking on notes of smoke, spice and caramel with exposure to air.

Winemaker Notes

Campo del Drago 2017 is surprisingly fresh on the nose with floral and citrus notes. The perfectly completed phenolic maturity is distinguished in the mouth, with a tense and long finish. The wine has no bitter notes, typical of the 2017 vintage.
Excellent with red meats and game.

Winery Notes

Situated in the province of Siena where the renown area of "Brunello di Montalcino" is found, Castiglion del Bosco encompasses approximately 4,450 acres of land, 125 of which are vineyards with plans to plant 15 more acres. The farm is located between the historic towns of Buonconvento and Montalcino. Given the truly magnificent geographical position of the estate, perched on a hill looking down onto the surrounding valleys, exposure is optimal resulting in wines of excellent quality. These are very exciting wines, new and classic at the same time.

Castiglion del Bosco was the first to produce and bottle Brunello di Montalcino in the sixties and today represents one of the most important properties of this region. Plans are currently underway to produce new wines and expand the existing cellar. This estate prides itself on the highest level of quality combined with respect for tradition. Claudio Basla, from Altesino, also consults at Castiglion del Bosco insuring the same levels of quality that we have always enjoyed from that estate.
