Castelgiocondo Ripe al Convento Riserva Brunello di Montalcino 2009
The base Brunello is a wine of Frescobaldi's future, and the 2009 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva Ripa Al Convento is a wine of Frescobaldi's past. This Riserva flaunts all those oak-tones of cinnamon and chocolate that have been a hallmark of this estate despite the fluctuating stylistic trends that regularly wash over Montalcino. Soft fruit flavors are enhanced by cherry, blackberry, tobacco and leather. The tannins are thicker and the consistency of the wine is fleshier than average. This is a wine with excellent potential for aging. Drink date: 2016-2030. Score - 93. (Monica Larner,, Feb. 27, 2015 )
