Brunello di Montalcino "Castelgiocondo" is a wine that is a bearer of the passing of time and respect for tradition, a value that the Marchesi de' Frescobaldi winery, still today, after 700 years of history, continues to highlight in each of its labels. It is a territorial red, which expresses the potential of Sangiovese within one of the most renowned terroirs in the whole of Tuscany, and which gives a powerful but never out of control sip, always harmonious thanks to its elegant tannins. A bottle that confirms itself at the top of the entire denomination, as testified by the main Italian and foreign trade magazines.

This "Castelgiocondo" Brunello di Montalcino comes from a very careful selection of Sangiovese grapes made by the team of the Marchesi de' Frescobaldi winery. The vineyards, facing south and south-west, are situated at an optimum height, between 250 and 450 metres above sea level, and are rooted in a terroir rich in sand, clay and calcium. The berries, once harvested by hand, ferment alcohol in steel, macerating for 30 days and also performing malolactic fermentation. Then we move on to the ageing phase, carried out for 24 months in Slavonian oak barrels, for another 24 months in French oak barriques and, finally, after bottling, for 4 months directly in glass.

The Brunello di Montalcino "Castelgiocondo" reveals itself to the eye with a ruby red colour, compact and not very transparent. On the nose there are evident fruity scents, embellished by notes that tend to be spicy, from which also a slight woody touch emerges. On the palate it is full-bodied, ample and beguiling, round and satisfying, with a warm sip that ends with a pleasantly tannic aftertaste. The spirit of Montalcino is encapsulated by the Marchesi de' Frescobaldi winery, a historical reality that boasts several centuries of tradition in the world of wine, in this great red wine, ideal to accompany main courses based on game.
