Producer Note

Tenuta di Castiglioni was the first estate cultivated by the Frescobaldi family, which has produced over 700 vintages. The family’s passion for wine in this area started in Castiglioni, along the road of the same name, which the ancient Romans built to link Rome to Tuscany. On the gentle hills of Val di Pesa, southwest of Florence, the combination of the terroir, the mild climate and the characteristic afternoon sea breezes from the Tyrrhenian Sea is expressed in the Tenuta di Castiglioni wines which are structured, generous and show a rich, purity of fruit.

Vineyard

Tenuta Castiglioni is situated in the gentle hills of Val di Pesa. The richness of the weather and the terroir is expressed in the structure of the wines, due to the symbiosis between the soil, the mild climate and the afternoon breezes from the Tyrrhenian Sea. The vines are grown in well drained, dry, and stony soils, which are poor in organic matter and have a clay and limestone content.

Winemaking

The grapes were softly pressed, followed by fermentation in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks for 12 days. Maceration lasted for 20 days for the Merlot and 15 days for the Sangiovese. Malolactic fermentation took place in barriques immediately following alcoholic fermentation. The wine was aged for 14 months in new barriques.

Tasting Note

A complex aromatic medley ranging from wild red berry fruits to hints of pungent clove and nuances of lively menthol. The palate impresses with its velvety smoothness, appealing mouthfeel, concentration and its long-lingering, silky finish.
