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.
The growing season was noteworthy for the high temperatures and limited rainfall during the summer months as well as the particularly dry seasons, all of which encouraged a harmonious development of the grapes. Although the harvest was quite long, our grapes remained in perfect health until the end, which is the first important step for the production of good wine. The sunlight and warmth of 2012 will give CastelGiocondo wines extraordinary potency and richness.
An intense ruby red in colour, the wine expresses itself through clearly defined aromas of raspberry and pomegranate, which are further enriched by elegant floral notes. In the mouth, the CastelGiocondo Brunello 2012 is harmonious and well-defined wine with elegant tannins and a sapid and mineral persistence.
