Cellar/Tasting Notes
The wine is a clear ruby-red color with garnet highlights. Mature fruit emerges on the nose (plum, blackberry with floral notes of violet). Spicy perfumes are evident among black pepper, cloves, and nutmeg, followed by clean hints of flint and leather. The palate reveals a dense tannin texure, fresh and mellow, the incarnation of the classic style of this fabulous wine.
Wine Enthusiast (WE): 92
"Frescobaldi's Castelgiocondo is a protagonist in the Brunello school that prioritizes bold, modern expressions of the Sangiovese Grosso grape. This vintage shows pulpy fruit, soft spice and chocolate backed by dark concentration. The mouthfeel is generous and full with a thick, velvety texture."
Wine Spectator (WS): 90
"A ripe, warm red, with cherry, plum and baked earth notes backed by woodsy spice accents. The focus narrows on the finish, where the dusty tannins reign. Offers fine, spicy length."
