Deep purple color, strong nose with notes of mint and spice, notes of mint and spice on the tongue as well as strong minerality and a slight acidity. Will pair nicely with a variety of foods.

Undurchlässiges Purpur. Betörendes, konzentriertes Bouquet nach schwarzen Kirschen, schwarzen Johannisbeeren, dunkler Schokolade. Weicher Auftakt mit nach und nach intensiver werdender Fruchtaromatik, schwarzer Holunder, Mokka, etwas Baumnuss, elegante Tannine, tolle Komplexität, sehr langes Finale.

Wine Advocate ReviewRated 89Tenuta di Castiglionis entry-level 2006 Tenuta di Castiglioni is 55% Cabernet Sauvignon and 45% Sangiovese that spent 12 months in French oak. This plump, juicy wine offers notable harmony in a soft, fruit-driven style. Even though there isnt much varietal or regional identity here, readers looking for a easygoing fun red will want to consider this offering. Anticipated maturity: 2008-2010.Wine Tasting NotesTenuta di Castiglioni flaunts the densest, opaque purplered, a depth that is impressively mirrored in its rich nose. Crisp minty essences emerge first, followed by a spicy melange of clove, cinnamon, and vanilla, which concludes with a prominent vein of slaty mineral. Solid structure shows through in the mouth, with juicy tannins and a judicious acidity developing through the palate; it tapers off nicely in a perfect balance of elements.
