JS 93 Pts, WS 90 Pts - According to James Suckling - A Brunello with a core of berry and currant character on the nose and palate. Full and silky with an orange and lemon peel character. This is a subtle wine with muscle that needs two or three years of bottle age to soften and be ready.
Winemaker Notes - Castelgiocondo 2008 is a clear ruby-red colour with garnet highlights. Mature fruit emerges on the nose such as plum and blackberry with floral notes of violet. Fully evident are the spicy perfumes among which black pepper, cloves and nutmeg prevail and are followed by clean hints of flint and leather. Entry on the palate reveals a dense tannin texture, fresh and mellow, the incarnation of the classic style of the Brunello from Castelgiocondo. rated 90+
