Frescobaldi Castiglioni Chianti 2011

Winemaker's Notes:

Složení: 90 % Sangiovese, 10 % Merlot. Chianti Castiglioni má rubínově červenou barvu s purpurovými odlesky. Aroma je plné zralého ovoce, zejména třešní a sušených švestek, na konci je náznak sladkých mandlí. Víno je čisté, svěží s dloiým koncem. Doporučujeme k pečenému kuřeti, restovanému hovězímu masu se zeleninou nebo k vyzrálým sýrům.

Clean and fresh on the nose with good Sangiovese fruits and a lovely bloody/mineral feral edge. there is a touch of background sweetness from the wood but the rare beef, clay and iron tones really adds freshness and frames the fruit. Bright and fairly tannic in the mouth this offer a clean, slightly plummy palate impression that speaks of the majority Cabernet in the blend but the finish is cut short by the tannins. Nicely balanced and with the juicy acidity all this needs is 12-18 months for the tannins to come into balance and then this should be a solid bottle. 2010-2017 88pts

Castiglioni 2008 - Frescobaldi : Castiglioni 2008 - Rotwein von FrescobaldiDer Chianti Castiglioni ist ein weicher, angenehm fruchtiger Wein mit einer klar umrissenen Persönlichkeit. Man sieht ihm ein deutliches Rubinrot mit purpurnen Reflexen an, das Bukett wird bestimmt von Kirsche, wozu sich die Düfte von Pflaumen und aromatischen Kräutern, wie Salbei gesellen. Der Körper des Weins ist ausgewogen mit einem spürbaren, aber gut integrierten Tannin, angenehmer Frische und der richtigen Länge des Finales. Er schmeckt hervorragend zu Nudelgerichten, pikantem Perlhuhn, gebratenem Kalbfleisch mit Steinpilzen und reifem Hartkäse wie Comté und Parmigiano. Er sollte eine Stunde vor dem Genuss geöffnet werden.Weingut: FrescobaldiLand: ItalienRegion: ToskanaRebsorten: 90% Sangiovese, 10% MerlotAlkoholgehalt: 13,0 Vol.%Inhalt: 0,75 lLagerfähigkeit: 5 - 7 Jahre ab JahrgangFassreife: in Barriques gereiftEmpfohlene Serviertemperatur: 16-18°C Rotwein > Italien > Toskana

Wine Tasting NotesChianti Castiglioni greets the eye with a forward, purple-flecked ruby red. The nose opens to clean aromas of black cherry over nuances of dried plum and spicy, sage-like herbs. The palate is remarkable for its balance, showing abundant but well-integrated tannins, a tasty acidity, and a finish in harmony with all its components.
