Marchesi de' Frescobaldi Brunello di Montalcino Castelgiocondo 2000
|Region||Italy, Tuscany, Brunello di Montalcino|
|Brand||Marchesi de' Frescobaldi|
Wine SpectatorIntense aromas of blackberry and light vanilla. Full-bodied, with velvety fruit and a long, caressing finish. Pretty, ultramodern and very good quality for the vintage. Best after 2006. 21,000 cases made.
Wine EnthusiastSeductive floral aromas are jazzed up by healthy red-fruit scents, and once you get to the mouth the wine becomes precise and tight. This is a defined Brunello with clear plum and black cherry flavors that are sweetened by hints of almond candy and red licorice. Sturdy, mildly tannic and full. Should be just right in about three years. Imported by Folio
