Tenuta di Castiglioni's deep, opaque ruby-red, rimmed in purple, intrigues the eye. The nose is marked by appealing, fragrant fruit, with deep draughts of dark-fleshed fruit, such as wild blackberry, black cherry, plum, and strawberry, which shade into toastier notes of cocoa powder, roast espresso bean, tobacco leaf, vanilla, and cinnamon. Impressively full-bodied, the palate shows pleasurably warm, smooth, and well-rounded. Its tangy acidity and noble tannins, already well integrated into the structure, contribute to its exemplary balance. Subtle fruit enlivens a lengthy, long-lingering finish.

Love this wine. Will definitely purchase again. I find that I prefer a bold red and this is perfectly suited to my tastes. Thoroughly enjoyed!
Wonderful blend. Great bang for the buck!

We purchased this when we traveled to Italy earlier this year and it was quite good. We were hesitant to purchase a case because we thought the taste was helped by the atmosphere. We talked ourselves into buying a case and it was everything we remembered. Wonderful! Dark red in color and flavorful. Since for last name is Castiglioni we plan on giving some to our friends for Christmas.
