Brunello di Montalcino Castelgiocondo Frescobaldi 94js Premier 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

"A rich, explosive wine endowed with generous fruit and an extroverted personality to match. Black cherries, flowers, licorice and spices are woven together nicely in this deep, layered Brunello...92" WA 4/12 "Opens with dark, inky concentration and bold aromas of pressed rose, black cherry, exotic spice, leather and unsweetened chocolate. Very nice balance and complexity. Very beautifully put together with ample intensity and silkiness on the finish. Smooth and firm. Elegant...95." Wine Enthusiast - 2/12 "Aromas of violets, dark berries and raspberries, follow through to a full body, with ultra-fine tannins and a long finish. A wine with lovely texture. Chewy. Citrusy undertone. Best in 2015....94." www.jamessuckling.com 1/12

The Marchesi de' Frescobaldi is one of the most significant wine producers in Italy, with nine estates, and more than 1,000 hectares, in Tuscany. The family has been growing wine since the early 14th century, when they became the first in Tuscany to import and plant French vine cuttings. Because they have been producing wines for more than 700 years, to experience Frescobaldi is to glimpse the history of Florence, from the Middle Ages to the present day. The core wine growing philosophy of the Marchesi de’ Frescobaldi revolves around the integrated relationship among environment, vine, climate, and man’s intervention. They continually upgrade their extensive vineyard holdings, and they craft their wines with the finest combination of traditional and innovative methods. Wine Spectator has ranked many of their offerings in the 90s and their wines are consistently listed in the magazines Top 100 Wines of the Year, encouraging wine enthusiasts from around the globe to become familiar with some of Italy’s finest wines.
