Marchesi de Frescobaldi Castelgiocondo, Brunello di Montalcino DOCG, Italy 2006
Robert ParkerThe 2006 Brunello di Montalcino is one of the most juicy, easygoing wines readers will come across in this vintage. A sweet, open bouquet leads to bright red fruits as this vinous Brunello flows from the glass. Crushed flowers, mint and raspberries add complexity on the delicate, nuanced finish. The wine’s up-front personality makes it an excellent choice for enjoyment over the next handful of years.
Wine SpectatorThis red starts out ripe and accessible, boasting plum, cherry and chocolate flavors, then turns firm and tight on the finish, where tobacco and mineral notes take over. I like the potential of this when it integrates more fully. Best from 2014 through 2024. 2,650 cases imported.
