Frescobaldi Brunello di Montalcino Castel Giocondo 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

Brunello is made from 100% Sangiovese Grosso grapes, a native clone of Sangiovese--think Chianti-- grown in Montalcino. They are lush, pleasure-giving reds. "Aromas of wild blackberry, red currant and sour cherry, closely followed notes of violets and spicy characters of black pepper, clove and tobacco leaf. Hints of espresso bean, vanilla and a slight minerality. The palate exhibits a velvety mouthfeel with bright, crisp flavors."Edited from tuscanytonight.com*This item has been reduced for the Closeout Sale. Stock is limited and all sales are final.*

Silky smooth tannins make this well constructed, complex and well balanced Sangiovese ready to drink now but will improve for years to come.
