Frescobaldi Tenuta Frescobaldi Di Castiglioni Toscana IGT 750ml

The rich, elegant Tenuta di Castiglioni, this estate’s iconic wine, is clearly in a modern key, but holds fast to the qualities of its local terroir.

The wine appears a dense, almost opaque purple-red, but of striking luminosity. Intense, rich draughts of red berry fruit lead off on the nose, with raspberry and wild strawberry well in evidence, followed closely by rich blackberry and dark cherry. This impressive, multi-layered bouquet closes with spicier impressions of cocoa powder, tobacco leaf, vanilla, and cinnamon. The palate is equally impressive for its warmth, velvet smoothness, and complex balance, where dense but supple tannins are already well integrated into the structure. A tasty, nervy acidity fuels a lengthy progression, and it concludes with lovely fruit in a final crescendo.

50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Franc, 10% Sangiovese.
