Tenuta Frescobaldi di Castiglione di Toscana

External Review by Great Wines Direct:

One of the major and largest vine growing businesses in Europe, Frescobaldi owns nine estates covering over 1,000 ha of vineyards, all located in excellent areas for fine wines. Directly manager by its family members, Frescobaldi produces almost 7 million bottles and the wines are exported to over 60 countries throughout the world. The Frescobaldi name goes back many centuries into the history of art, culture, trade and finance of Italy in general and Tuscany in particular. From the second half of the last century, the Frescobaldi’s were keen players in the development of Tuscan vine-growing. Grapes : Cabernet Sauvignon 50%, Merlot 30%, Cabernet Franc 10%, Sangiovese 10% Region : Italy / Tuscany / Toscana IGT Maker : Nicolò D'Afflitto Notes : The rich nose is followed by crisp minty nuances and a spicy mélange of clove, cinnamon, and vanilla, which concludes with a touch of slaty minerality. The palate is structured with firm but fine tannins. Serve : At room temperature with hare, game, wild boar, roast beef and pork and mature cheese. ABV : 13.50%
