Producer Note
CastelGiocondo epitomises the spirit of Montalcino. It is considered to be one of the
most historical estates of Montalcino, as it was one of the first producers of Brunello di
Montalcino during the 1800s. The vines are overlooked by the castle and the small
medieval town of Montalcino. The combination of the unique location of the
vineyard, which is situated at 300 to 400 metres altitude; the south western
orientation, which benefits from the warming afternoon sun; and the free draining
marl soil culminates to produce this top quality Sangiovese. The CastelGiocondo
wines are distinguished by their opulence, power and extraordinary longevity.
Gambero Rosso awarded Frescobaldi with the prestigious ‘Tre Bicchieri Winery of the
Year Award 2020’, in recognition of its uncompromising commitment to quality and
innovation.


Vineyard
The Tenuta CastelGiocondo vineyard is located in Montalcino at 300 metres above
sea level. 12 hectares of vines are grown in the Lamaione vineyard with a southwesterly exposure. The vines were planted in 1998, to a density of 5,500 vines per
hectare and are low-spur pruned cordon trained. The clayey terrain is rich in
limestone and mineral elements with a lightly alkaline pH.


Winemaking
The grapes were hand-harvested, destemmed and manually sorted. Fermentation
took place in stainless steel vats at controlled temperatures of between 28 to 30°C
with maceration lasting three weeks, extracting colour, flavour and fine tannins. The
wine was matured for 24 months in 80% new French oak barriques, followed by a
further 12 months bottle ageing.


Tasting Note
An impressive bouquet of great aromatic richness and a complexity, Lamaione 2015
expresses ripe blueberry and cherry, with delicate notes of coffee and chocolate
complemented by mint and liquorice. Opulent and voluptuous, with enveloping
velvety tannins this is rich in ripe berried fruit through to a long finish.
