    Region: Tuscany, Italy

    Varietal: Sangiovese

    Style: Smooth & Supple

    Item no. 120201

    Winemaker's Notes:

    Castiglioni Chianti is a deep ruby red with purplish highlights. Notes of small red-berry fruits like mulberry and currant insinuate themselves on the nose, while the ripe plum is perfectly in tune with fragrant violet and geranium. The palate is smooth, warm and elegantly balanced. A long, harmonious finish, good persistency, with a lightly spicy aftertaste.

    Blend: 90% Sangiovese, 10% Merlot

    Critical Acclaim:

    Fresh and fruity, with raspberries and hints of flowers. Medium-to-full body, with delicate tannins. Just a straight up Chianti that satisfies. Outstanding.

    Surprisingly good, it will get smoothier by ageing. Perfect with red meat, My wife and I enjoyed it.

    After visiting the Spanish steps in Rome we ducked into this wine store and purchased this bottle. Later that evening suffering from jet lag we were up at 300 am and sitting on our balcony of the hotel drinking this wine. It was a good wine and goes well with heavy sauces. I purchased some once we got back home.

    Frescobaldi's low ends are low ends. My wife took a sniff and said it smells like a dirty horse. She asked for something else. I drank it and found it had the character of a Tuscan street beggar.
