Professional Reviews For This Wine


International Wine Cellar | Rating: 91

($57) Opaque ruby with dark garnet hues. Intense aromas of incense, nutmeg and cinnamon lead to flavors of blackberry, chocolate, espresso and vanilla. Densely structured, with palate-coating gauzy tannins and a decidedly mineral edge to the finish. Though it lacks the excitement of the best wines of the vintage, this is a fine offering from Frescobaldi Montalcino estate. (Paterno Imports, Chicago, IL)

The 1997 Brunello di Montalcino Castelgiocondo is an earthy, herbaceous effort with a dark plum/ruby color as well as a sweet bouquet of cherries, compost, underbrush, and Asian spices. Medium-bodied, dry, and angular, with complex aromatics, it is hard to say in what direction this wine will go, but I would opt for drinking it over the next 8-10 years.

Wine Spectator | Rating: 96

Superbly crafted. Pretty aromas of black cherry, cream and licorice. Full-bodied, yet incredibly tight and smooth, with ultrafine tannins and a long, long, velvety finish. 12,000 cases made.
