Frescobaldi Castelgiocondo Ripe Al Convento Brunello di Montalcino Riserva 2004

Winemaker's Notes:

"Subtle, yet intense aromas of blackberries, blueberries and flowers, with just a hint of vanilla bean. Full bodied, with lovely berry, chocolate and spice flavors that follow through to a firm and racy finish. Best after 2012...95." WS 4/10 "...reveals attractive, floral red fruits in a layered, elegant style backed up with lovely density and richness. Mont, flowers and red berries linger on thwe delicate, silky finish...one of the most complete and beautiful wines I have ever tasted from Castelgiocondo...94." WA 4/10

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.
