Castelgiocondo is produced from an uncompromising selection of the finest Sangiovese grapes, in a vineyard whose ideal elevation, well-drained soils, and southwest-facing exposure yield all of the qualities that converge to produce the finest expression of this ancient grape variety.
It is an elegant, well-balanced wine of magnificent structure. This Brunello exhibits layered aromas of wild blackberry, red currant and sour cherry, closely followed by floral notes of sweet violets and spicy characters of black pepper, clove and tobacco leaf. Cocoa, roasted espresso bean, vanilla and a slight mineral character add to the complexity of the nose. The palate exhibits a velvety mouthfeel, bright, crisp flavors, and noticeable tannins, with all of the components in fine balance. Fruit-driven flavors dominate the long finish.
