Save $15.75 (21%)

SKU 00406


The wine appears a rich ruby red, then releases clean-edged aromas of raspberry and pomegranate, enriched by graceful floral notes. All components are beautifully balanced on the palate, with glossy, elegant tannins and a full-flavoured, long-lingering finish with a delicious minerally tang. Pair with beef stews, braised meats and aged cheeses. 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.

Wine SpectatorAromas of sweet spices accompany the cherry, leather, soy and underbrush flavors in this muscular red. Seems a bit more advanced than its peers, but ends with freshness and tannins. Best from 2017 through 2026. 20,000 cases made.
