From the Critics:

  • "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." - 92 Pts Wine Enthusiast
  • "Solid and full bodied, with chewy tannins and a polished, refined undertone to it all. Makes me contemplate Sangiovese -- in a good way. Still needs a year or two to come together in the bottle." - 92 Pts James Suckling
  • "The 2005 Brunello di Montalcino is a pretty offering laced with fresh flowers, plums, dark berries and spices, all of which emerge gracefully from its mid-weight frame. Clean, minerally notes inform the long, delicate finish. This is a terrific effort from Castelgiocondo, especially considering production is a whopping 230,000 bottles. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2020." - 91 Pts Antonio Galloni - Vinous
