Press / Wine Critic's Reviews

Notes from the Winemaker:
Castelgiocondo is produced from a selection of the finest Sangiovese, in a vineyard whose ideal elevation, well-drained soils, and southwest-facing exposure yield all of the qualities to produce a great expression of the variety. It is an elegant, well-balanced wine of magnificent structure. Is made with

organically grown grapes.

Vintage Report:
The 2015 vintage is an historical year for Brunello and nobody should miss it. The wines show impressive precision of vivid fruit, fine tannins and freshness in acidity despite their ripeness and richness which makes them some of the most exciting in years.

The growing season in 2015 was impressive. The winter and spring had plenty of rain to make up for the intense sun and heat during the summer. There was some rain in September before the harvest to freshen the vineyards. And as noted before, good vineyard management compensated for the hot weather during the growing season, and sorting out dried grapes at harvest was extremely important for making exceptional wines.

Ratings & Reviews

97 Points - James Suckling:
"This is a pure and beautiful Brunello with super fine and abundant tannins that are comprehensive and expansive. Builds on the palate. Full body. Round and firm with beautiful fruit and length. Lively and vivid. From organically grown grapes. Needs a year or two to soften, but already gorgeous." - (24 Aug, 2019)
