Frescobaldi Chianti Castiglioni 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

Wine Tasting Notes Chianti 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.

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
