1999 Castelgiocondo (Marchesi de' Frescobaldi) Brunello di Montalcino, Italy, Tuscany, Wine Review
Ruby in color, mostly clear and bright. The nose has cherries, dust, dried cedar and slight spice. Medium bodied. Wispy tannins. On the palate, this has a nice complexity to it. Layers of dried cherries, cherries and forest floor. Good acidity. Good finish. This is past prime and on the way down, so drink sooner than later. It is better with food. A nice plate of pasta with a tomato sauce would work well.
