2006 Castelgiocondo Brunello di Montalcino (Was $70) 750ml

Quick Overview

The 2006 Castelgiocondo Brunello exhibits layered aromas of wild blackberry, red currant and sour cherry, closely followed by floral notes of sweet violets and spicy characters of black pepper, clove and tobacco leaf. Cocoa, roasted espresso bean, vanilla and a slight mineral character add to the complexity of the nose. The palate exhibits a velvety mouthfeel, bright, crisp flavors, and noticeable tannins, with all of the components in fine balance. Fruit-driven flavors dominate the long finish.

2006 Castelgiocondo Brunello di Montalcino (Was $70) 750ml

Castelgiocondo is produced from an uncompromising selection of the finest Sangiovese grapes, in a vineyard whose ideal elevation, well-drained soils, and southwest-facing exposure yield all of the qualities that converge to produce the finest expression of this ancient grape variety. It is an elegant, well-balanced wine of magnificent structure.Serving suggestions; beef stews, braised meats with potatoes, cheeses that are aged but not too pungent, and large game, such as boar.

JAMES SUCKLING RATING: 95

JAMES SUCKLING REVIEW: Frescobaldi's Brunello always delivers great quality in just about any vintage. Gorgeous nose of ripe berries and slice plums with an almost peach undertone. Full bodied, with a solid core of gorgeously clean and clear dark fruits. Dense and integrated tannins on the finish. So long and fascinating. Best after 2013.

WINE ENTHUSIAST RATING: 93

WINE ENTHUSIAST REVIEW: Castelgiocondo's Brunello aptly represents the new face of Montalcino with its plump, well-extracted and modern style. The wine is packed with soft black cherry, chocolate and coffee aromas and shows a smooth, long-lasting finish.

WINE SPECTATOR RATING: 93

WINE SPECTATOR REVIEW: This red starts out ripe and accessible, boasting plum, cherry and chocolate flavors, then turns firm and tight on the finish, where tobacco and mineral notes take over. I like the potential of this when it integrates more fully. Best from 2014 through 2024.
