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. Gambero Rosso awarded
Frescobaldi with the prestigious ‘Tre Bicchieri Winery of the Year Award 2020’, in
recognition of its uncompromising commitment to quality and innovation.
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 grapes for this wine are grown in a vineyard where the soils are made up of
calcareous clay which is rich in stone.
Winemaking
The freshly harvested grapes were destemmed and fermented with natural yeasts in
temperature controlled tanks, during which light pump-overs were carried out. Once
the alcoholic fermentation was complete, malolactic conversion took place and the
wine was aged in barriques for a 12 month period.
Tasting Note
The complex bouquet has fruity notes reminiscent of blackberry and sour cherries,
giving way to elegant hints of vanilla, tobacco and white pepper. Warm, soft and
round on the palate, with ripe fruity notes that echo the nose, fine, intense tannins and
a delicately spiced finish.
