Castelgiocondo Brunello di Montalcino, from Frescobaldi’s Castelgiocondo estate, has consistently been one of the most highly acclaimed wines in Italy. The vineyard is located on the Montalcino hills, 40km from the sea and at an altitude of 250 to 450 meters above sea level. The surroundings of Castelgiocondo feature the typical Mediterranean woodlands. The climate is hot and dry, with a little even rainfall, good ventilation and the vines have an excellent exposure to the sun. It results in a wine that is packed tight with the sunshine and the brilliant luminosity of its birthplace

Winemaker Notes

Lamberto Frescobaldi

Marchesi de Frescobaldi

by Lamberto Frescobaldi
The 2016 vintage is a dense, warm, full-flavoured and complex Brunello with leather and earthy savoury notes, combined with violets and toasted coffee. It envelops the palate with impressive balance, dense tannic texture and minerality through to a long finish. This is an immediate wine that can be consumed within the next few years but if you have the patience to wait, it promises a steady medium-term evolution
