For thirty generations, the name Marchesi de' Frescobaldi has stood for a passionate and constant commitment to viticulture and winemaking that wisely combines tradition and modernity. The Tenuta di CastelGiocondo is one of the nine major estates of the Tuscan wine dynasty. Situated on the south-western slope of the Montalcino hill, not far from Castelnuovo dell'Abate and the impressive Sant'Antimo Abbey, the winery covers an area of 815 hectares. Around 235 hectares are used for viticulture. Above the winery stands the medieval Castel Giocondo, a fortress built to defend the road leading from the coast to Siena. At this historic site, the Frescobaldi family is doing everything it can to maintain and enhance the reputation of the excellent Brunello Crus.
The Tenuta di CastelGiocondo was one of the four wineries where the Florentine noble family first began to produce Brunello di Montalcino around 1800. The farm has soils that are extremely suitable for the cultivation of Sangiovese and offer the best conditions for the production of excellent wines. The densely packed vines grow on well-drained ground at about 300 to 400 metres above sea level in a sunny south-westerly orientation.
The Brunello di Montalcino "CastelGiocondo" is regularly a great expression of the royal wine produced in the winery and at the same time the result of a rigorous selection of soil, orientation and height. For the Riserva of the same name from the Ripe al Convento vineyard, only particularly good grapes from the best vintages are considered. The Rosso di Montalcino "Campo ai Sassi" is regarded as an excellent food companion. And behind the name "Lamaione" is the first pure Merlot in the Montalcino area from a location of the same name.
Marchese Leonardo de Frescobaldi is today the head of the wine empire of the Florentine noble family, which dates back to the 14th century. Tenuta di CastelGiocondo also relies on the advisory expertise of the renowned oenologist Niccolò d'Afflitto and a number of other specialists. SUPERIORE.DE
