Critic Scores, Reviews & Descriptions
94 VM / 93 WS / 93 WE
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 Antonio Galloni
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. - Bruce Sanderson, Wine Spectator
Beautifully intense and generous. this Riserva Brunello from Frescobaldi's Castelgioconda estate boasts a modern, determined style. Aromas here include black cherry, chocolate, tobacco and spice. In the mouth, this wine is rich, smooth and very persistent.
