Castelgiocondo Brunello di Montalcino 2008

Castelgiocondo Brunello di Montalcino 750ml 2008         
Sku: 16276

Castelgiocondo is produced from an uncompromising selection of the finest Sangiovese grapes, in a vineyard whose ideal elevation, well-drained soils, and southwest-facing exposure yield all of the qualities that converge to produce the finest expression of this ancient grape variety. It is an elegant, well-balanced wine of magnificent structure.

Rating
Wine Spectator 93 points - This fresh version brimswith cherry, mineral, briar and tobacco aromas and flavors. Works toward equilibrium, with solid tannins, and finishes with a mouthwatering impression. Best from 2019 through 2035. 28,889 cases made.-BS .June/2015 Vinous 93 points - Dark red cherry, smoke, plum, wild flowers and cedar are some of the notes that flesh out in the 2010 Brunello di Montalcino from Castelgiocondo. Ripe, soft and textured on the palate, the 2010 impresses for its silkiness and early approachability. Sweet floral and spiced notes reappear on the finish, adding considerable lift and perfume. This is a lovely showing from Castelgiocondo and the Frescobaldi family. .Antonio Galloni, February/2015 Wine Advocate 94 points - The 2010 Brunello di Montalcino ushers forth a new stylistic chapter in the wines of Marchesi de¡¯ Frescobaldi. Gone are those overt oak notes of cinnamon, dark chocolate and moist chewing tobacco. Instead, this fresh and streamlined wine renews its effort to put Sangiovese in prime positioning. The bouquet shows dark cherry, ginger and grilled herb. Instead of immediacy, this wine is engineered for longevity and that comes as a surprise considering that Castelgiocondo has historically been one of the biggest advocates of what is now dubbed ¡±¡±international¡±¡± Brunello. With the 2010 vintage, this estate goes back to its traditional roots. The wine is young now and needs about five more years to complete its cellar evolution..Monica Larner, February/2015
