From those gorgeous rolling hills of Montalcino, we have found another Brunello to add to your collection. We are in love with the CastelGiocondo 2014 vintage! Ready to drink but also has enough muster to handle a few years. 

Kerin O'Keefe from Wine Enthusiast describes the wine with "....the polished palate evokes juicy red cherry, pomegranate, licorice and a hint of coffee..." and we could have captured the greatness any better. CastelGiocondo has mastered Brunello is this delicate vintage and it should be celebrated and shared.

"4.4/5.0. Still young, but very good. An earthy BdM that was delicious." BigKatWines

"Very elegant, fruity, nice use of oak, and still young. A wine worth having in your cellar!" Christos P. 

"The Brunello was poured straight from a freshly opened bottle, but did open up quite quickly. Overall impression was a positive one, with good concentration and a decent structure of tannins and acidity. Lots of savoury character, earth, undergrowth, herbs, oak. Red fruit, attractive minerality. Good option for younger drinking." DF

93 points, Wine Enthusiast"Aromas of woodland berry, damp soil, new leather and crushed thyme form the nose along with a whiff of iris. Linear and elegant, the polished palate evokes juicy red cherry, pomegranate, licorice and a hint of coffee alongside fine-grained tannins and vibrant acidity. It's already approachable but also offers good mid-term aging. Drink 2020–2026."

92 points, James Suckling
"Chewy and tannic for a 2014, but there’s sweet fruit underneath with citrus and floral brightness. Medium body. Flavorful finish. Go-to Brunello. Drink or hold."

90 points, Wine Spectator
"High-strung, offering floral, strawberry, cherry and mineral flavors stretched tightly on a linear frame. Shows intensity and harmony, along with a finely etched structure, ending with a long aftertaste of fruit, mineral and spice. Best from 2021 through 2040."

90 points, Decanter
"Rather than its typical 12 months in barriques followed by 12 months in bottle, the 2014 was transferred to large casks after just six months to curb oxidation of this more delicate vintage. It's not as dainty as some of its peers, as the saignée technique was used to increase concentration. The result is a fleshy red with ripe fruit nuanced by iron, smoke and fennel notes. It's well-balanced and finishes with a saline tang. Drinking Window 2019 - 2026"
