Brunello di Montalcino DOCG is produced by CastelGiocondo of Marchesi de' Frescobaldi using the Sangiovese Grosso grape grown with care and dedication. The vineyards of the Frescobaldi Brunello di Montalcino are planted at the estate of CastelGiocondo in Montalcino, the birthplace of Brunello. It is one of five prestigious estates owned by the Frescobaldi family where, fully respecting the Tuscan tradition, the harvest is done manually with careful attention to the accurate selection of grapes.
The history of Brunello di Montalcino begins in 1800 at Montalcino when Clemente Santi begins trials of a clone of Sangiovese: Sangiovese Grosso, called Brunello because of the dark color of the grapes. The legend of Brunello developed thanks to his grandson Ferruccio Biondi-Santi who began making wine selecting the best grapes and creating, in the 1870s, a delicate yet powerful red wine. Today Brunello di Montalcino is famous throughout the world and represents a point of excellence in Italian enology.
The land of the estate, rich in clay and calcium, promotes the production of a higher quality Brunello di Montalcino, capable of stirring emotions through the nose and palate. Visual examination reveals a wine with a very strong ruby-red colour which perfectly fulfills the desire of those who also seek beauty in a wine. Approaching the glass, the nose is greeted by fragrances typical of Brunello: fruit, blackberries, currants and cherries. The taste is full and enveloping; this typical wine of Montalcino is ideally paired with aged cheeses, braised meats and wild boar stew.
