Winemaker's Notes

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.

Critical Acclaim

"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."

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.
