2006 Brunello di Montalcino Castelgiocondo Frescobaldi

Average critic rating : 89.0 points



The 2006 Brunello di Montalcino is one of the most juicy, easygoing wines readers will come across in this vintage. A sweet, open bouquet leads to bright red fruits as this vinous Brunello flows from the glass. Crushed flowers, mint and raspberries add complexity on the delicate, nuanced finish. The wine’s up-front personality makes it an excellent choice for enjoyment over the next handful of years. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2020. ||Castelgiocondo is one of Lamberto Frescobaldi’s two estates in Montalcino. If these new releases are any indication, quality seems to be on the upswing here. Wine Advocate.May, 2011

Owning 4,200 hectares in Tuscany, Frescobaldi are amongst the largest private vineyard owners in all of Italy. Producing a huge variety of top red and white wines, from Chianti Rufina to Brunello di Montalcino, Frescobaldi’s wines reflect the characteristics of their wide-ranging vineyard holdings.
