Marchesi di Frescobaldi Spa Castiglioni Chianti Rouge 2010

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Very nice on the nose, a veritable bowl of cherries with hints of flowers, almond, pear and almond adding detail. Rather large scaled at first, this fills the mouth with lovely fruit. A bit plummy at the edges but cherry to the core, with soft tannins and enough acid to add a bit of snap on the palate. There’s some gentle complexity here but this is all about finely presented fruit that follows through on a finish which retains a hint of fruit sweetness while showing the gentle austerity of ripe Sangiovese tannins. Lovely wine. 88pts

The Marchesi de' Frescobaldi is one of the most significant wine producers in Italy, with nine estates, and more than 1,000 hectares, in Tuscany. The family has been growing wine since the early 14th century, when they became the first in Tuscany to import and plant French vine cuttings.

Tart fruit flavors, almost like a strawberry/rhubarb pie that's light on the sugar, softened by more concentrated black fruits. Decent tannic structure to tie it together.
