Tenuta di Castiglioni Toscana IGT 2010

Winemaker's Notes:

Dichtes Purpurrot. Kleine, wilde Erdbeeren und Himbeeren in der offenen Nase, unterlegt von delikaten Vanillenoten und etwas Zimtwürze. Warmer, samtiger Gaumen nach roten Beeren, in schöner Harmonie zu den Röstaromen, Milchschokolade; insgesamt sehr eindrucksvoll und weich fliessend, erstklassige Tanninqualität und ein komplexes, langes Finale.

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.

Showed savory notes on the nose with green olive, chalk dust and a hint of red fruit. The palate was medium bodied and showed raspberry, confectioners sugar and a bit of cinnamon. Altogether an enjoyable any day wine.

bald, lacking flavors. It tasted watered down although it smells a little of minerality and grape juice. Dry.

Again, a nice tuscan blend that we enjoyed. Not quite as much as Argiano's NC, however still a full bodied, smooth blend with great flavor. $19.95 VW

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.

Dunkles Rubin, violette Reflexe. Sauerkirschen und Himbeeren in der fein abgestimmten Nase, auch eine Spur Menthol, elegante Röstaromen. Saftige Gaumenaromatik mit viel Toscana-Affinität. Gut gereifte feine Tannine, hervorragend strukturiert; elegantes, stimmiges und lange anhaltendes Finale.

Intensives Rubinrot, zum Rand hin leicht aufgehellt. Saftige Amarenakirschen, Erdbeeren und verführerische Noten nach gerösteten Mandeln erfreuen in der angenehm parfümierten Nase, abgerundet von etwas Kakao und Zimt. Viel Schmelz im Auftakt, abgelöst von einer rassigen Fruchtaromatik, an Pflaumen und Brombeeren erinnernd; eine optimale Balance zwischen der dezenten Toskanafrische und einer wohl-strukturierten, fruchtig-würzigen Aromatik, weiche Tanninstruktur; im Abgang elegant und von feinen Röstaromen begleitet.

The wine appears a dense, almost opaque purple-red, but of striking luminosity. Intense, rich draughts of red berry fruit lead off on the nose, with raspberry and wild strawberry well in evidence, followed closely by rich blackberry and dark cherry. This impressive, multi-layered bouquet closes with spicier impressions of cocoa powder, tobacco leaf, vanilla, and cinnamon. The palate is equally impressive for its warmth, velvet smoothness, and complex balance, where dense but supple tannins are already well integrated into the structure. A tasty, nervy acidity fuels a lengthy progression, and it concludes with lovely fruit in a final crescendo.

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

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.
