"Bright full ruby-red. Deep, pure aromas of red cherry, herbs, violet, tar and licorice. Thick and dense but tightly wound, showing a very fresh dark fruit character and a youthfully firm-edged tannic spine. Rich and dense, this calls for at least another three to five years of patience, and should last for another decade or two after that. Finishes long with tarry and savory notes, but it's the floral lift on the back end that I like most." - Ian D'Agota

"The Castelgiocondo 2013 Brunello di Montalcino shows impressive balance and a bright sense of inner energy. The wine reveals delicate fruit with wild berry and dried cherry. Those primary notes are carefully enhanced by sweet spice, rose potpourri and moist earth. The ensemble is graceful and territory specific. Long gone are the days when this wine was one of the most opulent and darkly extracted of the appellation. Over these past years, the Frescobaldi family's base Brunello has embraced a highly streamlined and elegant stylistic approach." - Monica Larner
