Marchesi de' Frescobaldi Brunello di Montalcino Castelgiocondo 2017

CastelGiocondo 2017 has an intense, bright ruby-red colour. Like every vintage, 2017 brought with it a wonderfully elegant quality. The bouquet features fruity aromas, particularly at the beginning, with notes of raspberry, blackcurrant and even pomegranate. The beautifully harmonious and alluring hints of violet and rose are truly wonderful. Gradually, its maturity becomes truly remarkable, revealing spiced hints of white pepper, clove and star anise, toasted notes and more complex roasted notes and hints of liquorice. On the palate, the tannic structure is dense and the mineral quality is wonderful. This is an incredibly harmonious wine with a long, persistent finish.

A tightly-woven version, the cherry, berry and earth flavors quickly give way to beefy tannins. Leans to the dry, tannic side in the balance, yet has fine length. Best from 2025 through 2040.

The 2017 Brunello di Montalcino Castelgiocondo presents an intense bouquet of medicinal cherries laced with autumnal spice and hints of camphor. This is juicy, racy even, with brisk acids enlivening the tart red and blue fruits, as grippy tannins slowly mount toward the close. It leaves the palate clenched in youthful poise, as balsam herbs, dark chocolate and hints of plum sauce linger on. This is a full-throttle Brunello that walks the tightrope of balance. That said, there's a lot of pleasure to be found here.
