"A firm, silky red with blueberry, blackberry and mineral aromas. Hints of chocolate. Full body, pretty fruit and a long, flavorful finish. Very refined. A standard-bearer. Better in 2017."

Wine Spectator 91
"Aromas of sweet spices accompany the cherry, leather, soy and underbrush flavors in this muscular red. Seems a bit more advanced than its peers, but ends with freshness and tannins. Best from 2017 through 2026."

Vinous Media 91
"The 2011 Brunello di Montalcino is a very pretty wine. Succulent, open-knit and racy, the 2011 offers lovely purity of fruit in a racy, forward style that is best enjoyed sooner rather than later, while the flavors retain their brightness. Sweet red cherry, flowers and spices reappear on the finish, adding a closing burst of energy."


" CastelGiocondo Brunello di Montalcino presents a clear ruby red with garnet highlights. Pronounced notes of blackberry elegantly accompanied by floral notes such as violet. The nose is complex and well-blended: spicy notes of black pepper and clove, tobacco and leather, and "jus de viande" reflect well the evolution of the wine. Resonating tannin textures, mellow structure with a long and elegant finish. " ~ Winery notes
