Notes from the Winemaker:

The rich Tenuta Frescobaldi di Castiglioni, this estate’s iconic wine, is clearly in a modern key, but holds fast to the qualities of its local terroir. The labels of the bottles prior to the 2009 vintage presented the caption as “Tenuta di Castiglioni”.

Tenuta Frescobaldi di Castiglioni 2011 boasts a splendid purple-red, with violet highlights. The nose lays out intense aromas of bright red fruit, such as wild strawberry and redcurrant, followed by lovely, pungent notes of anise and cinnamon plus subtle hints of cocoa powder. In the mouth, a lengthy, slow-paced progression is accompanied by superb structure, an emphatic acidity, and dense, well-integrated tannins. The finish is nicely fruit-laden.

Food Pairing: Ideal with game such as hare and boar, with roasted or sautéed beef, roast of pork, as well as with full-flavoured cheeses.

Variety: 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot, 15% Cabernet Franc, 5% Sangiovese

Alcohol by volume: 13.5%

James Suckling:
"This is a solid red with blueberry and currant character. Full body, with silky and chewy tannins and a long, long finish. Tangy acidity with a citrus undertone. A blend of cabernet sauvignon, merlot, cabernet franc, and sangiovese. Better in 2015." –JS (September 30th, 2013)
