  • Vintage Report
    Vintage Report The growing season was noteworthy for the high temperatures and limited rainfall during the summer months as well as the particularly dry seasons, all of which encouraged a harmonious development of the grapes. Although the harvest was quite long, our grapes remained in perfect health throughout, the first important step for the production of good wine. The sunlight and warmth of 2012 give CastelGiocondo wines extraordinary potency and richness.
