Tenuta Frescobaldi di Castiglioni is an intense ruby-red color with purplish highlights, showing a brilliant clarity and lovely consistency. On the nose, fruit is the protagonist with notes of cherry, currant, strawberry, and blue California plum. Added to these are spicy hints of cinnamon, pepper and nutmeg, roast cocoa, coffee and hazelnut. The palate is warm, supported by a pleasing vein of acidity that makes it fresh. Subtle tannin texture; dense and elegant. Long and persistent, Tenuta Frescobaldi finishes with a pleasant quality of freshness and fruit.
Ideal with game such as hare and boar, with roasted or sautéed beef, roast of pork, as well as with full-flavoured cheeses.
Earth & Spicy
If this isn't the perfect summer red I don't know what is. Big earthy bouquet with cedar and oak notes and a dark ruby red almost purple color. This gets you interested in the contents. Ripe fruit with a thick mouth fell at the start then it thins out quickly into a lighter enjoyable finish. The finish is fresh and and low commitment. You could sip this by the pool, at a friends BBQ or even with a well prepared dinner and it would fit into all occasions.
Smooth & Supple
Just a flat out delicious blend! Loooong, velvety and smooth. Let it air out for 30 mintutes..... Enjoy.
this is a lovely wine, and very good value to boot. Very smooth, and drinking very well now. Although we drink solo, this should be an excellent food wine as well.
