Shows a complex nose of blackberry, tanned leather, sandalwood and cedar. Fascinating. Full-bodied, with supersilky tannins and a long, long finish. Concentrated yet balanced. Beautiful and complete. (JS) *Ranked #15 on the Top 100 Wines of 2009*
The 2004 Brunello di Montalcino is a big, super-ripe wine bursting with fruit. This deep, concentrated Brunello is incredibly fresh and vibrant. Although the sweet tannins make the wine very accessible at this stage, readers in search of a more complex drinking experience will want to give this Brunello a few years in bottle. The 2004 Brunello from Castelgiocondo is a lovely effort from the Frescobaldi family and one of the finest vintages to be produced at the property. (AG)

Frescobaldi’s Castelgiocondo estate was named in the on-going Brunello fraud scandal. Despite the legal troubles, this year’s Brunello asserts itself with pride and determination. It seems very different than past vintages because, here, the focus is on feminine aromas of honey, maple syrup, sweet cassis and candied fruit.
