Tenuta di Castiglioni Toscana IGT 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

Kräftiges Purpur, violette Reflexe. Köstliche schwarze Kirschen, Walderdbeeren und Himbeeren vereinen sich im Bouquet mit Kaffee- und Kakaonoten. Im Gaumen weich und von einer schönen Wärme, mit ausgesprochen eleganten Tanninen ausgestattet, aromatischer und intensiver Abgang von ausgezeichneter Länge.

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. Because they have been producing wines for more than 700 years, to experience Frescobaldi is to glimpse the history of Florence, from the Middle Ages to the present day. The core wine growing philosophy of the Marchesi de’ Frescobaldi revolves around the integrated relationship among environment, vine, climate, and man’s intervention. They continually upgrade their extensive vineyard holdings, and they craft their wines with the finest combination of traditional and innovative methods. Wine Spectator has ranked many of their offerings in the 90s and their wines are consistently listed in the magazines Top 100 Wines of the Year, encouraging wine enthusiasts from around the globe to become familiar with some of Italy’s finest wines.

Inviting nose of perfumed floral and candied red fruit. Thick chewy red-black fruit balanced off by a sour acid bite. Fruit fades rapidly leaving a finish of pleasant tannic mineral followed by lingering leather. Off-dry, medium to light body, medium or less tannins. Good food wine. Wine probably needs decanting.

Great wine, let it breath for a while or cellar for about 3 years.

93 Points - Wine Spectator "Intense aromas of currant, raisin and licorice, with hints of toasty oak. Full-bodied, with velvety tannins and a powerful currant, blackberry and mineral aftertaste. Dense, and all in reserve. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Sangiovese. Best after 2013. 9,200 cases made. "-JS, Issue: Oct 31, 2009
