This remarkable experience begins in Tuscany and includes not only a three-night stay at the exquisite Rosewood Castiglion del Bosco, but an opportunity harvest grapes with vineyard’s chief winemaker, enjoy a vertical tasting of rare Zodiac vintages and take a helicopter tour of the private Tenuta Prima Pietra vineyard.
Since Massimo Ferragamo launched Castiglion del Bosco’s limited edition Zodiac Brunello di Montalcino in 2013, each sublime vintage has become one of the most sought after among collectors, with several scoring 98-99 points from influential critic James Suckling. Made from the best available sangiovese grapes, the wine comes in a specially numbered bottle, featuring a specially commissioned Chinese zodiac sign created by a famous Chinese artist.
In an exciting partnership between Rosewood Beijing and Castiglion del Bosco, guests of this outstanding 12 Days experience will journey between Tuscany and Beijing to witness first-hand how this iconic Italian wine is created. It begins with a private harvest experience with Castiglion del Bosco’s chief winemaker, Cecilia Leoneschi, which includes grape picking and selection, and learning about the fermentation and aging process. The stay will also include a vertical tasting of four selected Zodiac vintages, an opportunity not offered to the public due to the rarity of these wines.
While at Rosewood Beijing, guests will receive a copy of a specially commissioned artwork, signed by the acclaimed Chinese artist creator, that celebrates the new Year of the Rat Zodiac wine vintage (2020) as well as a coveted collector’s edition of six previous vintages and the current vintage, all of which come in magnum bottles. Mr. Massimo Ferragamo, owner of Castiglion del Bosco, will host guests at the gala dinner launch of this prized wine.
