Owned and operated by family famed throughout the world for its luxury shoes, now Salvatore Ferragamo Jr has decided to dedicate his life to wine. His grandfather invented haute couture shoes as we know them today, and the family now owns two Italian luxury wineries, one of which is based in Montalcino specializing in Brunello. Castiglion del Bosco is one of Tuscany’s most noteworthy estates and a leading producer of the renowned Brunello di Montalcino. Situated in the heart of Tuscany’s Brunello winemaking region, Castiglion del Bosco is located in the Val d’Orcia 12 kilometers northwest of Montalcino. The soil is characterized by the presence of sandstone, layers of clay and galestro, a typical Tuscan stone. The microclimate in this area is strongly influenced by the sea with hot, dry summers and continuous winds which reduce humidity. The richness of the galestro stone in the soil gives the wine its unique aroma, complexity and structure.Brunello di Montalcino of Castiglion del Bosco comes from a careful selection of vineyards located in the Capanna area, approximately 350 meters above sea level, on the southern side of the property.
