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.

Excellent, silky tannins just as advertised. Leathery, deep dark prune aroma and similar flavours in the mouth. Nicely layered and satisfying. Would rate higher - except possibly a little pricey at north of $65 cdn...

($60) Ruby red color. Earthy on the nose, rose pedals, no fruity as a I expected. Red, bright fruit on the palate, moderate tannins. Enjoyable but will not be purchasing any.

Dark red cherry, smoke, plum, wild flowers and cedar are some of the notes that flesh out in the 2010 Brunello di Montalcino from Castelgiocondo. Ripe, soft and textured on the palate, the 2010 impresses for its silkiness and early approachability. Sweet floral and spiced notes reappear on the finish, adding considerable lift and perfume. This is a lovely showing from Castelgiocondo and the Frescobaldi family

This fresh version brims with cherry, mineral, briar and tobacco aromas and flavors. Works toward equilibrium, with solid tannins, and finishes with a mouthwatering impression. Best from 2019 through 2035. 28,889 cases made.

The 2007 Brunello di Montalcino Castelgiocondo is 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. The 2... Robert Parkers Wine Advocate.

Ruby red. Powerful, ranking as one of the top wines of the vintage! Sweet cherry and rustic earth dominate the nose initially, then strawberry, wet leather, and spice emerge to make the wine sing. On the palate, inviting tannins make this wine enjoya... Jeff Loo. A Sangiovese Grosso wine from Tuscany in Italy. 2007 Castelgiocondo Brunello di Montalcino 750ml
