An intense ruby red in color, the wine expresses itself through clearly defined aromas of raspberry and pomegranate, which are further enriched by elegant floral notes. In the mouth, the CastelGiocondo Brunello 2012 is harmonious and well-defined wine with elegant tannins and a sapid and mineral persistence.
