Frescobaldi's Castelgiocondo is one of the most consistent vineyards in Tuscany producing great value Brunellos with a history going back 700 years. The 2001 vintage was made to last and is now opening up and showing its true class.

"Aromas of blackberry, licorice and tar. Full-bodied, with silky tannins, great mouthfeel and a caressing finish that's long and exciting. Builds and builds on the palate. Very close to the legendary 1997.” Wine Spectator
