Marchesi de' Frescobaldi

Italian Wines

Marchesi de' Frescobaldi, Brunello di MontalcinoThe Frescobaldi family have been making wine in the heart of Tuscany for seven centuries. With a philosophy of combining history with innovation and a total commitment to quality, the Frescobaldis are at the leading edge of the Italian wine renaissance.

Castel Giocondo
Castel Giocondo Estate - Brunello di Montalcino Castel Giocondo was built in 1100AD to protect the road from the port of Talamone to Siena. It was one of the first four estates to produce and bottle the famous Brunello di Montalcino, a wine which is classified as among the greatest in Italy. The estate is situated on the seaside deposit of Montalcino at an altitude of 250 to 450m and at sea level, it extends some 807 hectares, of which 202 cultivate the vines, with 152 hectares devoted to the production of Brunello Montalcino. The terrain of the vineyards is diverse and well adjusted to the various altitudes. The climate is dry and windy. At 151 ha this is the largest vine growing estate in the Brunello di Montalcino DOCG area for Sangiovese and utilises the latest vineyard technology and most innovative techniques to produce the full-bodied and long-lived Castelgiocondo Brunello di Montalcino. The estate is at 250-450m with a south-southwest exposure on soils rich in galestro, with clay, limestone, and rich in calcium. Plantings are at 3000 vines/ha in "low density" vineyards, and 5500 in the last generation of "high density" vineyards, low spur pruned cordon, with an average age of 26 years Harvest Harvest at the Marchesi de' Frescobaldi estates began this year on August 28th. The grapes, which ripened 7-10 days earlier this year, were harvested in excellent condition and are rich in sugars and polyphenols thanks to a spring with periods of rain, followed by periods of sunshine. A mild summer with sparse rains helped to avoid drought and stress on the vines, and the heat during the second half of August further promoted sugar concentration. The Sangiovese grapes ripened early this year, and are rich in anthocyanins and tannins

castel giocondo WinesMarchesi de' Frescobaldi Brunello di Montalcino Castel Giocondo 2001, # 27 in Wine Spectators 2006 top 100 list
The Montesodi vineyard is part of the Nipozzano estate, found in the heart of the Chianti Rufina. The land consists mainly of clay and limestone, with little organic substance, and the climate is dry and windy, ideal conditions to produce great harmonic wines, full-bodied, with a structure particularly adapted for long aging. It exudes expansive, multi-layered aromas, ripe-fruit fragrances of dark cherry and dried plum melding into more pronounced, minerally essences of pencil lead and stone, while suggestions of tobacco leaf seem to bring a sense of balance and completeness.  Rated 96 Wine Spectator
Brunello di Montalcino
Brunello di Montalcino is a red wine produced in the vineyards surrounding the town of Montalcino, Italy. Brunello is a local name for Sangiovese in Italian, and is one of the best-known wines of Italy. Well-made Brunellos are capable of aging. Brunello must be made from 100% Brunello clones of the sangiovese. It is released no sooner than the fifth year after harvest (i.e. 2001 Brunello is released in early 2006). Brunello currently must be aged in wood for 2 years and at least 4 months in a bottle before release. Traditionally, the wines are aged 3 years or so in "botte," large oak casks that impart little oak flavor but allow for the controlled softening of the wine. In Montalcino there are examples of obviously ‘modern’ wines that are very competently made, a pleasure to drink and will appeal to those whose palate and brains are uncluttered by any notion of great traditional archetype. Among these, Siro Pacenti is a fine example. Nowadays, the wines only have to spend two years in wood, which has resulted in fruitier Brunellos. Some traditionalists are unhappy about this, especially if new French oak is involved. They argue that Brunellos that taste of new oak and are as deeply coloured as Bordeaux are a betrayal of the region's traditions. The response of one ultra modernist, Giancarlo Pacenti of Siro Pacenti, is a verbal middle finger: 'Does Brunello have to be orange to be any good? It's possible to have too much wood in old barrels too.'
