Wine tasting notes

Intense ruby red in colour, CastelGiocondo Brunello 2014 expresses itself through complex aromas of raspberry and blackcurrant, with subtle hints of blueberry, which are further enriched by elegant floral notes and the tertiary spice of cinnamon, pepper and leather. On the palate, it envelops the palate with impressive balance, dense tannic texture and minerality through to a long finish.

Vinification Notes

The grapes were hand-harvested and underwent a scrupulous selection process in the cellar. Fermentation took place in stainless steel controlled temperatures. The wine was aged in wood, where it matured for a period of five full years, resulting in a refined and balanced wine. It received further bottle ageing for several months, prior to release.
