Wine Brunello di Montalcino DOCG
Winery CASTELGIOCONDO
Vintage 2008
Format 750 ml

Castelgiocondo is produced from an uncompromising selection of the finest Sangiovese grapes, in a vineyard whose ideal elevation, well-drained soils, and southwest-facing exposure yield all of the qualities that converge to produce the finest expression of this ancient grape variety. It is an elegant, well-balanced wine of magnificent structure.

Varietal: 100% Sangiovese

Zone: The estate of Castelgiocondo, is located in the southwest of Montalcino, an ideal terroir for Sangiovese and for the great wines that are produced here. The vineyards are found at the perfect altitude between 300 and 400 metres with well-drained soils and sunny, favorable southwest exposure.

Aging: minimum 2 years in Slavonian oak casks and in French oak barrels and minimum 4 months of bottle refinement.

Characteristics: Castelgiocondo 2008 is a clear ruby-red colour with garnet highlights. Mature fruit emerges on the nose such as plum and blackberry with floral notes of violet. Fully evident are the spicy perfumes among which black pepper, cloves and nutmeg prevail and are followed by clean hints of flint and leather. Entry on the palate reveals a dense tannin texture, fresh and mellow, the incarnation of the classic style of the Brunello from Castelgiocondo.

Serving suggestions: Beef stews, braised meats and aged cheese.
