Marchesi De' Frescobaldi Castelgiocondo Brunello di Montalcino 2015

The Castelgiocondo Brunello di Montalcino from Frescobaldi is a dense, warm, full-flavoured Brunello with leather and herbal notes combined with violets and toasted coffee. This Brunello di Montalcino is a lively, luminous ruby red. The nose offers a melange of berries, dominated by blackberry with floral notes of violets, backed by spicy black pepper and toasted coffee and hazelnuts. The texture is dense with elegant tannins. The finish is very long and warm with the spicy notes joined by intense fruity flavours. This superb red wine is best served with beef stews, game and aged cheeses.

One of the major and largest vine growing businesses in Europe, Frescobaldi owns nine estates covering over 1,000 ha of vineyards, all located in excellent areas for fine wines. Directly managed by its family members, Frescobaldi produces almost 7 million bottles and the wines are exported to over 60 countries throughout the world. The Frescobaldi name goes back many centuries into the history of art, culture, trade and finance of Italy in general and Tuscany in particular. From the second half of the last century, the Frescobaldi's were keen players in the development of Tuscan vine-growing

Vinification
The grapes were hand harvested during the first week of October and then pressed in soft horizontal presses. Fermentation took place in stainless steel tanks at less than 30C and lasted 12 days. Maceration lasted 32 days. Immediately after alcoholic fermentation malolactic fermentation took place. The wine is matured for 4 years, of which at least 2 years must be spent in oak.

Viticulture
Spur pruned cordon and guyot vines with an average age of more than 29 years old. Medium to high density planting with 3,000 vines per hectare in the first generation vineyards; 5,500 in the vineyards recently planted.

Tasting Note
Clear hints of cherries and plums are accompanied by Brunello's traditional floral aromas of violets and lingering spicy notes. Concentrated and rich, well structured, this is a fine and aristocratic wine.

Everyday Serving Suggestion
Castelgiocondo Brunello di Montalcino is best served with beef stews, braised meats with potatoes, cheeses that are aged but not too pungent, and large game, such as boar.

Can you explain your shipping charges?

We charge the amount the courier charges us to deliver the wines. In the majority of cases this is £10.00 for a dozen wines. For local delivery we charge £5.00 as we can often do this ourselves, by local we mean Milton Keynes.

Couriers charge by weight and size and a case of wines is both heavy and bulky and so the costs are fairly high. The charges are the same if you are buying 1 bottle or 6 bottles but they change if you go over 6 bottles due the the excess weight and size. Couriers also charge a fee to cover fuel excess and this all goes towards the total cost not to mention the 20% VAT to be added to everything.

Currently if someone orders a dozen wines they are charged £10.00 but if they order 24 bottles the charge is the same!

If you wish to have your wines shipped to other countries the costs are extreemly high and often not worth paying for. The cost for example to ship to the USA for a dozen wines would be £100.00 for the shipping alone! Therefore we have taken the decision not to ship any wines outside of the UK.

 

What is your minimum order?

The minimum order is 1 bottle! I prefer it if people order more and you get better value with the delivery if you do this too!

 

What if I want to send wine as a gift?

No problem, we will send to your preferred address and even include a card free of charge!

We have two kinds of cards a blank one and a Thank you one. However if you want a Valentines one or a birthday card or anyother type of card please let us know. We will write your personal greeting and even include the soppy stuff. We don't charge for the cards as its our way of thanking you for choosing us to send a gift to your loved one. 

 

What about a discount?

I may be able to take a little off the price if you ask nicely and there is a large enough order. Please do not ask for a discount on any orders under 12 bottles.  Email me with your requirements and I will let you know if I can do anything. However the best way to get a discount is to sign up for the newsletter as there is often special offers given away to newsletter subscribers.
