Frescobaldi "Castelgiocondo" 2016


Castelgiocondo is a red wine of great structure, elegant and balanced. It is a?Brunello of modern conception, because it rests partly in?barrique, and therefore gives a?softer and more persuasive approach to Sangiovese. Bright ruby red in colour, the bouquet enthuses with intense notes of red fruit including blackberry, currant, plum and blueberry, followed by?toasted hints of vanilla, tobacco and coffee.?Balsamic?and eucalyptus notes emerge in the finish. On the palate it is warm, soft and balanced, with?dense and elegant tannins that blend in well in the structure, also supported by a nice?acidity. The finish is long and persistent with slight fruity hints in the aftertaste. 97 James Suckling – 93 Vinous
