    Winemaker's Notes:

    Ruby red with dark, purplish highlights precedes a nose exceptional for its depth and breadth, offering a strikingly rich and diverse mosaic of aromas. A complex of black cherry, blackberry, and blackcurrant finds a beautiful foil in spicier notes of roasted coffee beans, bitter chocolate, tobacco leaf, and essence of vanilla. All of the elements blend beautifully together to create an impressive, already-evolved bouquet.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Frescobaldi’s 2008 Tenuta di Castiglioni is a big, juicy wine endowed with tons of fruit. This blend of 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Franc and 10% Sangiovese shows excellent balance, even if the tannins dry out just a touch on the finish. Ideally the wine needs a few more months in bottle for the oak to integrate. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2014.

    The Wine Advocate

    Medium red. Floral red berry aromas complicated by chestnut and graphite. Sweet and smooth on entry, with juicy red berry and dark plum flavors and a fresh, moderately long aftertaste. Delicious, easygoing wine.
