Brunello di Montalcino Riserva 2012, Ripe al Convento di Castelgiocondo, Frescobaldi

Tasting Note

Red berries, rich spice, black pepper and cinnamon on the nose; in the mouth the wine is well structured, complex and balanced with a warm and persistent finish.

Producer Note

A Florentine family with thirty generations dedicated to the production of great wines across six Tuscan estates. The Frescobaldi style brings together tradition and innovation. With the goal of being the most prestigious Tuscan wine producer, Frescobaldi firmly believes in respecting the local land while focusing on the highest quality grapes for its wines. The Frescobaldis own over 1,000 hectares of vineyards, all located in excellent areas for the production of fine wines. Directly managed by its family members, the Frescobaldi name is deeply connected with the history of art, culture, trade, finance and wine in Italy.


The grapes were hand harvested with cluster selection during the first week of October and then pressed using soft horizontal presses. Fermentation took place in stainless steel at 30C and lasts 10 days while maceration lasts 30 days. The wine then undergoes malolactic fermentation. It is matured for 5 years before release - by law a minimum of 2 years in wood and 6 months in bottle. The Frescobaldis use a mix of Slavonian oak casks and French oak barrels.

Serving Suggestion

Rich stews, slow-cooked meats and aged cheese.
