Brunello di Montalcino Castel Giocondo Riserva Ripe al Convento 2010 Frescobaldi
Unclouded and with a good consistency, Ripe al convento 2010 presents itself with a pleasing and intense red ruby colour with garnet hues. To the nose, the wine is complex and profound with an initially prevalent fruity presence of small black and red fruits such as plums, blackberries, and blackcurrant, which evolves into spiced vanilla notes and toasted scents of coffee, cocoa and tobacco. When tasted, the wine is warm, soft and balanced, and densely rich in tannins, which are well supported by the alcohol content and an acidity that is well balance by the other components. Tasted in December 2015.
