Frescobaldi, Castelgiocondo, Lamaione, Toscana IGT 1999

Merlot 100%

Description

A prestigious wine from the renowned Tuscan winery Castelgiocondo. Made from 100% Merlot grapes, this wine represents the powerful expression of Merlot, which has been cultivated since 1991 on the strong and arid clay soils of the Castelgiocondo Estate in Montalcino. The grapes are sourced from the Castelgiocondo estate in Montalcino. The vineyards are located at an altitude of 300 meters above sea level and cover an area of 12 hectares. The vine exposure is optimal to the southwest. The soil type is characterized by clay soils rich in limestone and mineral elements, with a slight prevalence of slightly alkaline components. The vineyard is planted with a density of 5,500 vines per hectare, using the low spur-pruned cordon training system. The vines are over 20 years old. For vinification, the wine undergoes a 4-week maceration period. The malolactic fermentation follows immediately after the alcoholic fermentation. The wine is aged in selected aging containers, primarily in new French oak barriques (90%) and second-passage barriques (10%). The aging period is 24 months in barriques, followed by an additional aging period of 12 months in the bottle.
