Vinification and ageing
The great care taken in the vineyard, together with the typical characteristics of this unmistakable terroir, resulted in an
outstanding harvest. The Sangiovese grapes were picked by hand and carefully selected after arriving in the cellar.
Fermentation took place in stainless steel tanks at acontrolled temperature with frequent pump-overs, particularly during
the early stages. The wine was then aged in wood containers, where it was able to mature, ripen and develop balance. Five
years after the grapes were picked, and only after another period spent ageing in the bottle, CastelGiocondo Brunello is
now ready to be placed on the market.
Brunello CastelGiocondo 2015 first appeal to the eye with its deep ruby red colour. On the nose expresses itself with
aromas of berries and sour cherry under spirit. Cinnamon, tobacco, mint and tealeaves combine in arange of aromas
really complex, where each component is alternating without dominating the others. The wine envelopes the mouth
completely, with velvety tannins that give acreamy feeling. The alcoholic component is well balanced by afresh balsamic
and asavory mineral sensation. Long finish, typical of the great vintages of CastelGiocondo.
