Always a classic this Brunello from Frescobaldi excels once again in the 2005 vintage. Wine Spectator selected the 2004 as their #15 Top Wine of the Year in 2009. This vintage Wine Enthusiast Magazine scored it 92 points saying "From the historic Frescobaldi family that has been making wine since the 1300s, this concentrated and rich Brunello delivers a modern touch to a territory steeped in tradition. Aromas here include plump cherry, blackberry and cassis and all that fruit is supported by spice and light toast. Drink after 2012." Extremely Limited!

Medium-deep red. Captivating, perfumed aromas of redcurrant, bay leaf and orange zest. Then bright and juicy on the palate, with lovely density to the red cherry, redcurrant and licorice flavors. The long finish features youthfully chewy tannins and ... Stephen Tanzer's IWC. A Sangiovese Grosso wine from Tuscany in Italy. 2005 Castelgiocondo Brunello di Montalcino 750ml

Gorgeous nose of ripe berries and slice plums with an almost peach undertone. Full bodied, with a solid core of gorgeously clean and clear dark fruits. Dense and integrated tannins on the finish. So long and fascinating. - According to James Suckling

Winemaker's Notes:

Erected in 1100, to defend the road between the port of Talamone and the town of Siena, the castle was acquired by the Frescobaldi in 1989. Frescobaldi CastelGiocondo was one of the first four wineries since XVIX century to bottle and produce Brunello, this region produces wine of enhanced structure, complex and balanced in nature. The Frescobaldi CastelGiocondo Estate is situated on the seaside deposit of Montalcino at an altitude of 250 to 450m and at sea level, it extends some 807 hectares, of which 202 cultivate the vines, with 152 hectares devoted to the production of Brunello di Montalcino. The terrain of the vineyards is diverse and well adjusted to the various altitudes. The climate is dry and windy, ideal conditions for the production of four different wines. The Riserva Brunello di Montalcino DOCG 2004 has a full nose with oaky, vanilla aromas and almost jammy, fruity tones combined with savoury notes. It has a dry, robust and harmonious palate with soft balanced tannins and with lovely consistent length.
