Tenuta Frescobaldi di Castiglioni 2011

50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Franc, 10% Sangiovese. Frescobaldi di Castiglioni 2011 boasts a splendid purple-red, with violet highlights. The nose lays out intense aromas of bright red fruit, such as wild strawberry and redcurrant, followed by lovely, pungent notes of anise and cinnamon plus subtle hints of cocoa powder. In the mouth, a lengthy, slow-paced progression is accompanied by superb structure, an emphatic acidity, and dense, well-integrated tannins. The finish is nicely fruit-laden. 93 Points James Suckling.

Complex but soft. Ripe fruit balanced with roasted beets and savoury notes.
