Wine critics reviewsReviews by Parker, Suckling, and Jancis Robinson

The Frescobaldi 2016 Brunello di Montalcino CastelGiocondo shows dark fruit, plum and spice. The wine offers good density and richness, but the aromatic intensity is downplayed compared to some of its peers from this classic vintage. Other than that, all the wine's elements are in the right place with cherry, wild plum, rose and tilled earth. Production is an ample 300,000 bottles.

An Italian wine empire, which with recent acquisitions exceeds 6.000.000 bottles produced per year and 1.200 hectares under vine. Despite these large numbers, Frescobaldi still has a very strong territorial identity, which translates into wines expressed at the highest levels in each territory. Frescobaldi embodies the essence of Tuscany, its extraordinary...
