Wine Enthusiast:

"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."

James Suckling - Jamessuckling.com:

"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."

Antonio Galloni - Vinous:

"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."
