Description

"CastelGiocondo is a unique place in Montalcino, where the great variety of exposures and soils – galestro, clays and Pliocene sands – give this Brunello infinite nuances. A versatility of notes that evolve over time and that make me constantly want to discover , savor and remember." 

CastelGiocondo 2016 represents a further chapter capable of being told beautifully. Its color is intense and lively ruby red. Its large bouquet is extremely elegant; the nose is initially pervaded by fruity sensations. The aromas of small berries and ripe red fruits predominate accompanied by an elegant floral note. Leaving it open, spicy scents and a balsamic hint are released, which make it extremely balanced and complex. In the mouth it reveals a dense and elegant tannic texture which, together with its characteristic mineral sensation, envelops the palate and impresses with its harmony. The finish is long, warm and persistent, with the return of the sweet and balsamic spicy components.

Vinification and maturation: The careful care placed in the vineyard, together with the typicality of this unmistakable terroir, led to a beautiful harvest. The Sangiovese grapes were harvested by hand and once they arrived in the cellar, they were subjected to a scrupulous selection. The fermentations took place in stainless steel tanks at a controlled temperature, with frequent pumping over especially during the early stages. The wine was then subjected to aging in wood, where it was able to mature, refine and balance itself. CastelGiocondo Brunello is ready to be placed on the market 5 years after the harvest and only after further refinement in the bottle.

Frescobaldi

Frescobaldi embodies the essence of Tuscany, its extraordinary vocation for viticulture and the diversity of its territories.​

The uniqueness of Frescobaldi arises precisely from the representation of this diversity by its estates and wines that express a kaleidoscope of aromas and sensations.​

Behind every Frescobaldi wine you can feel the heart of the people, agronomists and oenologists who live the vineyard and the terroir to grasp every detail. Their art requires the strict rule of respect. Respect for our tradition, which also guides us when we choose innovative solutions. Respect for Tuscany, which we consider a living land, to be cultivated in balance and harmony. Respect for every single terroir, which thanks to a unique combination of soils, altitudes and microclimates, gives us wines with their own unique personality.​
