Wine Profile

Tasting Notes The wine appears a luminous, garnet-rimmed ruby, deep and rich. The bouquet is notably complex, initially releasing emphatic notes of wild blackberry, red currant, and sour cherry, closely followed by floral notes of sweet violets and a parade of spicier impressions; black pepper, clove, tobacco leaf, cocoa powder, roasted espresso bean, and vanilla. Concluding this aromatic array are tasty hints of mineral, gunflint, and balsam. The palate shows great warmth and a velvety mouthfeel, bright, crisp flavours, and noticeable tannins, with all of the components in fine balance. A generously fruit-edged finish that is nearly endless.
Ratings Rated 93 Points Wine Spectator - "This red starts out ripe and accessible, boasting plum, cherry and chocolate flavors, then turns firm and tight on the finish, where tobacco and mineral notes take over. I like the potential of this when it integrates more fully. Best from 2014 through 2024. 2,650 cases imported. –BS"
Vineyard Notes 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.
Food Pairing Notes Beef stews, braised meats and aged cheese.
