About

97

James Suckling's #1 Wine of the Year for 2015! "Aromas of warm stones, dark fruits and walnuts follow to a full body, soft tannins and a savory finish. This shows ripe fruit and salty undertones that give it a wonderful juiciness. It's dense and tight now but will give so much pleasure in the future. Best ever from here. Drink or hold."

Product Description:

"The result of a rigorous selection of solely Sangiovese grapes in the vineyard, where all the characteristics necessary for enhancing this ancient vine variety are scrupulously adhered to.

CastelGiocondo is produced from an uncompromising selection of the finest Sangiovese grapes, in vineyards 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." - Winery
