Intense ruby red in colour, the wine expresses clearly defined aromas of raspberry and red summer fruits, further enriched by elegant floral violet notes. On the palate CastelGiocondo Brunello 2013 is harmonious and well-defined wine with elegant tannins and a sapid and mineral persistence. The wine has a long, lingering finish. Pair with beef stews, braised meats and aged cheeses.

Wine EnthusiastWild berry, crushed violet, pipe tobacco and chopped herb aromas leap out of the glass. Smooth and savory, the full-bodied palate shows restraint and elegance, delivering red cherry, pomegranate, ground clove and black pepper alongside taut fine-grained tannins and bright acidity.

Wine SpectatorA combination of cherry, leather and tobacco aromas and flavors are the hallmarks of this rich, fresh red. This is as much about the vivid acidity as the dense tannins, which add structure and focus to the flavors on the broad, expansive finish. Best from 2023 through 2038. 23,300 cases made.
