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.
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 vineyard soils are rich in marl, clay, limestone and also calcium.
The grapes were both hand and mechanically harvested during the end of September and the beginning of October. Following a soft pressing, the fermentation took place in stainless steel tanks at temperatures below 30°C. An 11 day maceration under temperature controlled conditions was followed immediately by a malolactic fermentation, softening the final wine. The wine was matured for six months in stainless steel preserving the purity of fruit.
The nose is intensely fruity, with notes of cherry, wild strawberry and blackberry alongside Mediterranean floral and herbal scents. The wine is sprightly but gives way to a pleasant softness and textured palate.
