    Winemaker's Notes:

    Castelgiocondo Brunello di Montalcino is a clear ruby red with garnet highlights. Pronounced notes of blackberry are elegantly accompanied by floral notes such as violet. The nose is complex and well-blended: spicy notes of black pepper and clove, tobacco and leather, and "jus de viande" reflect well the evolution of the wine. Resonating tannin textures, mellow structure with a long and elegant finish.

    Critical Acclaim:

    A Brunello with a core of berry and currant character on the nose and palate. Full and silky with an orange and lemon peel character. This is a subtle wine with muscle that needs two or three years of bottle age to soften and be ready.

    James Suckling

    A ripe, warm red, with cherry, plum and baked earth notes backed by woodsy spice accents. The focus narrows on the finish, where the dusty tannins reign. Offers fine, spicy length. Best from 2015 through 2028.
