Frescobaldi Chianti Castiglioni 2005

Winemaker's Notes:

Tasting Notes Chianti Castiglioni 2005 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.

Four glasses



<p>This wine has a purple red color with violet reflections. On the nose, cherry aroma is followed by strawberry and raspberry with floral sensations. The finish is persistent with notes of cherry returning in the aftertaste.&nbsp;</p>
