Tenuta CastelGiocondo is located 25 miles south of Siena in Montalcino and lies 400 metres above sea level, covering 815 hectares, of which 235 are under vine. Tenuta CastelGiocondo is one of the original estates that first produced Brunello di Montalcino in the 1860s. Overlooked by the castle and the small medieval town, the vineyards meet the fundamental criteria that bring out the best in the Sangiovese grape: perfect altitude, well-drained marl and limestone soils and optimal south-west aspect to take advantage of the warm afternoon sun.
The estate Cru is Ripe al Convento di CastelGiocondo, a Brunello di Montalcino Riserva DOCG from its namesake single vineyard’s handpicked grapes. CastelGiocondo Brunello Brunello di Montalcino DOCG is a wine that boasts great structure, elegance and balance with intense aromas and great finesse.
The vigorous but well-balanced Campo ai Sassi Rosso di Montalcino DOC, rounds up the selection.
