Castiglioni Chianti Italia Toscana Punaviinit Frescobaldi DOCG Chianti 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

Kräftiges Purpur, violette Reflexe. Köstliche schwarze Kirschen, Walderdbeeren und Himbeeren vereinen sich im Bouquet mit Kaffee- und Kakaonoten. Im Gaumen weich und von einer schönen Wärme, mit ausgesprochen eleganten Tanninen ausgestattet, aromatischer und intensiver Abgang von ausgezeichneter Länge.

La Toscana Winery:
The name "La toskana" was selected as a result of our love affair with Italy where Julie, my wife, and I lived for two years. During that time, we became acquainted with the wines and culture of Italy's northern regions.

Inviting nose of perfumed floral and candied red fruit. Thick chewy red-black fruit balanced off by a sour acid bite. Fruit fades rapidly leaving a finish of pleasant tannic mineral followed by lingering leather. Off-dry, medium to light body, medium or less tannins. Good food wine. Wine probably needs decanting.

Great wine, let it breath for a while or cellar for about 3 years.

93 Points - Wine Spectator "Intense aromas of currant, raisin and licorice, with hints of toasty oak. Full-bodied, with velvety tannins and a powerful currant, blackberry and mineral aftertaste. Dense, and all in reserve. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Sangiovese. Best after 2013. 9,200 cases made. "-JS, Issue: Oct 31, 2009

The eye is first impressed by a dense, violet-flecked purple red, and the nose is no less complex, releasing clean-edged impressions of dark cherry, wild strawberries, and raspberries, attractively complemented by spicy nuances of roasted espresso bean, cocoa, baker's chocolate, and vanilla. The palate shows alcoholic warmth, silky texture, and remarkable depth, with a mouth-filling suite of fine-grained tannins. The lengthy finish is subtly aromatic, with tasty notes of fruit in evidence.
