This is very typical with sottobosco, wet forest floor, and ripe red fruits. Full-bodied with firm tannins and a medium finish. This is starting to dry out but it is still outstanding. Pull the cork tonight.

The 1999 Brunello di Montalcino Tenuta di Castelgiocondo is a massive, explosive wine that would pair perfectly next to a thick cut of Tuscan T-bone steak. Brooding concentration is followed by charred earth, black licorice and smoked bacon fat. It all makes sense given the broad shoulders and substantial texture of the wine. The mouthfeel is less imposing, putting a higher priority on balance and focus. This bottle will continue to evolve in your cellar, but could also be popped now with two or three hours of aeration. Drink: 2014-2024. - Monica Larner

Frescobaldi’s Montalcino estate produces this nicely extracted, fairly sweet and modern wine. The style is refined and highly polished, with fleshy cherry fruit and a smooth texture.

The style is refined and highly polished, with fleshy cherry fruit and a smooth texture. Maybe too simple for the cognoscenti but possesses sure-fire restaurant and mass appeal.
