Constructed in 1100 to guard the road from the port at Talamone to Siena, the castle has belonged to the Frescobaldi family since 1989. Already one of the top-quality producers of Brunello di Montalcino in the late 19th century, the tenuta of Castelgiocondo yields massively-structured wines of great complexity and balance.
  • WINE COLLECTION

    SANGIOVESE
  • REGION

    Tuscany, Italy
  • TASTING NOTES

    Aromas of ripe dark-skinned berry, violet, underbrush and warm spice emerge in the glass, along with a whiff of camphor. Full-bodied and enveloping, the structured palate delivers raspberry jam, dried black cherry, licorice and tobacco alongside firm fine grained tannins. It closes on an espresso note.
  • FOOD PAIRING

    Brunello is a great wine that deserves something substantial, a fine roast leg of lamb with rosemary, pot roast pheasant, roast squab with truffles or that most famous dish of all Bistecca alla Fiorentina, Tuscan-style steak.
