Food Pairings for Frescobaldi Castelgiocondo Brunello di Montalcino
Great wine! A bit tight on the nose at first but opens beautifully! Dark chocolate, ripe dark cherry & plum, tobacco and a slight vanilla/brandy note. Firm tannins with balanced acidity! Great right now but no rush to crack it....great for another 4-6 years at least
It exudes expansive, multi-layered aromas, ripe-fruit fragrances of dark cherry and dried plum melding into more pronounced, minerally essences of pencil lead and stone, while suggestions of tobacco leaf seem to bring a sense of balance and completeness. Pulpy fruit comes to the fore in the attack, with tannins that are expressive but not invasive; they ably balance a nice vein of crisp acidity that makes the flavours sing. The long-lingering finale flaunts a rich mosaic of nuanced flavours.
