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.

Rich, elegant Tenuta Frescobaldi di Castiglioni, this estate s iconic wine, is clearly in a modern key, but holds fast to the qualities of its local terroir. The labels of the bottles prior to the 2009 vintage presented the caption as Tenuta di Castiglioni

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.

Marchesi de' Frescobaldi is one of Italy's most historic wine producers, dating to the 1300s. They are also one of the most significant producers in Italy, with nine different estates—and roughly 2,500 acres, all in Tuscany. This Super Tuscan blend is from their Castiglioni estate in the heart of Tuscany. The vineyards line the hills at 600-800 feet elevation. The focus here is on Bordeaux varietals with just 10% Sangiovese in the blend with 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc. The wine is aged for 12 months in French oak barriques. James Suckling scored this 91 points saying "Aromas of minerals, mint and spices with dried herbs and blackberries. Full-bodied, with firm tannins and bright fruit."

The eye is first impressed by a dense, violet-flecked purple red, and the nose is no less complex, releasing clean-edged impressions of dark cherry, wild strawberries, and raspberries, attractively complemented by spicy nuances of roasted espresso bean, cocoa, baker's chocolate, and vanilla. The palate shows alcoholic warmth, silky texture, and remarkable depth, with a mouth-filling suite of fine-grained tannins. The lengthy finish is subtly aromatic, with tasty notes of fruit in evidence.
