To the southwest of Montalcino, Tenuta CastelGiocondo is situated at an altitude of around 300 meters, an ideal terroir for the production of Sangiovese. CastelGiocondo’s unique location in Montalcino, with its varied exposure and terrain – Galestro, clay and Pliocene sands, offers infinite nuances to this Brunello. A multifaceted experience that evolves over time and entices me to discover, taste and remember, again and again.
This Brunello appeals first to the eye with its bright, rich ruby-red hue. On the nose, fruity notes dominate, ranging from raspberry to blackcurrant, with vague hints of blueberry.
Elegant floral notes then emerge, offering striking and surprising scents of violet. Spicy tertiary notes are then released, due to the lengthy aging process. Cinnamon, pepper and leather combine in an experience of extreme elegance, finishing on a balsamic note.
The wine envelops the mouth completely and impresses with its balance, its dense tannic texture and its minerality, as well as its long, persistent finish.
