Tasting notes - An intense ruby red in colour, the wine expresses itself through clearly defined aromas of raspberry and pomegranate, which are further enriched by elegant floral notes. On the palate, the CastelGiocondo Brunello 2012 is harmonious and well-defined wine with elegant tannins and a sapid and mineral persistence.

"A ‘beautifully perfumed style, with violets and blackberries, meaty and fleshy on the palate,’ began team leader Andrea Briccarello as this took the Gold."
