Brunello di Montalcino DOCG
CastelGiocondo is produced from an uncompromising selection of the finest Sangiovese grapes, in vineyards 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 throughout, the first important step for the production of good wine.
The sunlight and warmth of 2012 give CastelGiocondo wines extraordinary potency and richness.
