    Winemaker's Notes:

    Castelgiocondo Riserva 2006 has a lovely intense ruby-red color, with very delicate garnet highlights. The nose reveals fruity notes of blackberry and plum jam. Salty and woody flavors emerge at the finish with hints of black pepper and mineral notes of graphite. Heavy, but fine and elegant tannins. Castelgiocondo is enduring with great equilibrium, a long and persistent finish.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Wonderful nose of roses and ripe raspberries follow through to a full body, with silky tannins and a juicy fruity finish. Very tight and closed. Loads of fruit underneath the firm yet polished structure. Solid wine. Better in 2015.

    James Suckling

    An intense and opulent Brunello, with bold brush strokes of ripe cherry, blackberry, chocolate, coffee and mocha. Concentrated fruit and firm tannins are marked by a pretty touch of dusty mineral on the finish.
