Frescobaldi Castelgiocondo Brunello di Montalcino 2015

Tuscany, ItalyCastelGiocondo’s location in Montalcino offers up multiple soils of galestro, clay, and Pleocene sands, on hillsides from 180 - 360m, contributing to this Brunello’s complex nuances. 2015 was a very cold vintage, if on the warm side, but it yielded some terrific bottles with proper care. The organically grown fruit is handpicked and fermented in stainless steel and aged five years in oak, plus another 12 months in bottle before release. 2015 is certainly one of the finest editions of this wine, from its spicy red and black fruit to its almost luxurious creamy textures, and long persistent finish. This is one for the cellar and will hold through 2030. Excellent value.Tasted: 02 December 2020Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices: BC 55.95 BCLS AB 55.00 select private retailers MB 60.00 select private retailers ON 53.95 LCBO QC 50.85 SAQ Producer: Tenuta di FrescobaldiDistributors: Dandurand
