    Winemaker Notes

    Opaque ruby with dark garnet hues. Intense aromas of incense, nutmeg and cinnamon lead to flavors of blackberry, chocolate, espresso and vanilla. Densely structured, with palate-coating gauzy tannins and a decidedly mineral edge to the finish.

    Castelgiocondo
    Constructed in 1100 to guard the road from the port at Talamone to Siena, the castle has belonged to the Frescobaldi family since 1989. Already one of the top-quality producers of Brunello di Montalcino in the late 19th century, the tenuta of Castelgiocondo yields massively-structured wines of great complexity and balance.

    The estate lies on the southwestern slope of Montalcino, at elevations ranging from 180 to 400 metres, and comprises 815 hectares. The soils, given their various elevations, are diverse, and the climate is warm and dry, relieved by marine breezes: these are ideal conditions for producing very full-bodied, sturdily-structured and powerful wines that are, at the same time, characterised by remarkable finesse and balance. The wines produced at the Castel Giocondo estate are Castelgiocondo Brunello di Montalcino Riserva DOCG, Castelgiocondo Brunello di Montalcino DOCG, Campo ai Sassi Rosso di Montalcino DOC, and Lamaione IGT.
