The 2004 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva Ripe al Convento reveals attractive floral red fruits in a layered elegant style backed up with lovely density and richness. Mint flowers and red berries linger on the delicate silky finish. This mid-weight refined Brunello is one of the most complete and beautiful wines I have ever tasted from Castelgiocondo. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2024.This large sprawling property is located southwest of the town of Montalcino and is one of the two Montalcino wineries owned by the Frescobaldi family. In recent years the wines seem to be taking on a greater degree of elegance and finesse rather than relying on sheer power and concentration as has often been the case in the past.

This red is ultra firm yet dense with cherry and plum flavors augmented by wild herbs and black pepper. Stretched taut and sinewy in texture but shows character and length despite the astringent finish. Be patient. Best... This red is ultra firm yet dense with cherry and plum flavors augmented by wild herbs and black pepper. Stretched taut and sinewy in texture but shows character and length despite the astringent finish. Be patient. Best from 2014 through 2026. 175 cases imported. â_"BS
