Marchesi de Frescobaldi Castelgiocondo Brunello di Montalcino 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

CastelGiocondo Brunello di Montalcino presents a clear ruby red with garnet highlights. Pronounced notes of blackberry elegantly accompanied by floral notes such as violet. The nose is complex and well-blended: spicy notes of black pepper and clove, tobacco and leather, and "jus de viande" reflect well the evolution of the wine. Resonating tannin textures, mellow structure with a long and elegant finish. Matches Beef stews, braised meats and aged cheeses.

The nose showed vibrant red fruits and menthol. On the palate, it was lean with sour red berries, leading into a drying, structured finish.

The CastelGiocondo estate lies on the southwestern slope of Montalcino, at elevations ranging from 600 to 1,200 feet. Diverse soils and ideal exposure bring beautiful ripeness and development to the indigenous Sangiovese Grosso. This wine is always a classic and in the outstanding 2007 vintage it has truly excelled. It received 90+ scored across the board with a 95 from Wine Enthusiast Magazine who said "From Tuscany's celebrated Frescobaldi wine family, Brunello Castelgiocondo opens with dark, inky concentration and bold aromas of pressed rose, black cherry, exotic spice, leather and unsweetened chocolate. It is beautifully put together, with ample intensity, balance, complexity and silkiness on the finish." On Sale and Very Limited!

A powerful red, combined with the openness and charm of the vintage. Plum, black cherry, herb and tobacco flavors get support from the structure, with a long finish. Best from 2014 through 2023.

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 2007 will appeal most to readers who appreciate the lush, fruit-driven side of Brunello. This is very well done but falls just a bit short of being viscerally thrilling. Anticipated maturity: 2015–2025.
