About the winery

CastelGiocondo is located on the southwest quadrant of Montalcino, just a few kilometres from Castelnuovo dell’Abate and from the lovely Romanesque abbey of Sant’Antimo. This estate, which covers 815 hectares, including 235 hectares of vineyards, is deeply rooted in the history of Montalcino and is one of the most prestigious in the area. It has been recognised for its strenuous efforts to develop to the fullest the qualities inherent in this viticulturally-rich zone. A model winery committed to renewing the prestige of the great Brunello crus, CastelGiocondo personifies and preserves its unique, venerable, and indissoluble relationship with its historic terroir.

***** Excellent 
do not lose the oportunity, this wine will have probably 97 points
Vintage Report:
The 2004 harvest has been a very good one. The sunny days of the second half of September have been further favoring flavor and color concentration in grapes.
Furthermore the deep thermal variations between day and night have given the wine complex and different aromas. Tannins contained in the grape stones have taken advantage of sun and mild temperature of this period and have allowed a slow and organic evolution of the grapes, which will result in high elegance of the wine.
Tasting Notes:
The colour is deep and intense ruby red. The bouquet is rich, opening with scents of mint and ripe fruit which lead into spicier notes of coffee at the finish. The entry on the palate reveals perfectly integrated tannins complemented by a good but not excessive alcohol level and a well balanced acidity. The finish is long and persistent. #intenserubyred #scentsofmint #ripefruit
