- Cellar 5 - 6 years (2020-2021)
- ABV 15%
- Closure: Cork
Opaque dark red black tinged colour with a dark red hue. Expressive aromas of ripe dark cherries infused with hints of fresh tobacco are followed by cedar, faint scorched earth and spicy dried herbs. Rich and full, the palate is flooded with ripe dark cherry and spicy tobacco flavours over scorched cedar, earth, dried meats and spice. Slightly dryish finish with fine grained tannins that possess an underlying firmness giving the wine a sense of chewiness towards the finish. Long spicy dark cherry, scorched earth, cedar and dried meats aftertaste. A big rich chewy Brunello.
Cellar 5-6 years.
Aromas of warm stones, dark fruits and walnuts follow to a full body, soft tannins and a savory finish. This shows ripe fruit and salty undertones that give it a wonderful juiciness. It's dense and tight now but will give so much pleasure in the future. Best ever from here. Drink or hold.
The 2010 Brunello di Montalcino ushers forth a new stylistic chapter in the wines of Marchesi de' Frescobaldi. Gone are those overt oak notes of cinnamon, dark chocolate and moist chewing tobacco. Instead, this fresh and streamlined wine renews its effort to put Sangiovese in prime positioning. The bouquet shows dark cherry, ginger and grilled herb. Instead of immediacy, this wine is engineered for longevity and that comes as a surprise considering that Castelgiocondo has historically been one of the biggest advocates of what is now dubbed "international" Brunello. With the 2010 vintage, this estate goes back to its traditional roots. The wine is young now and needs about five more years to complete its cellar evolution.
