Tasting Notes and Scores
The 2007 Brunello di Montalcino Tenuta Friggiali caresses the palate with sweet red cherries, camphor, exotic spices, licorice and mint. It shows lovely aromatic complexity and softness in an approachable style best suited for drinking over the next few years. This is a terrific showing for the Friggiali. The 2007 spent 35 months in French oak. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2017.
A wine with dried fruits and chocolate and hints of wood. Full body, with chewy tannins and a long finish. Slightly monolithic now but structured. Needs time in bottle to build complexity.
Bright red. Sweet red fruits, mint and spices on the fresh nose. Then less fleshy than the nose would suggest, showing crisp red berry and orange peel flavors. Lingers nicely on the long, bright finish, with lively acidity and youthfully chewy tannins framing and extending the flavors. The Peluso Centolani family owns two major wine estates in Montalcino: Tenuta Pietranera and Tenuta Friggiali. Ian D'Agata
