In the Chianti region, 200 meters above sea level, the Castiglioni di Frescobaldi Estate extends for over 500 hectares. Due to the favourable microclimate and the specific properties of the soil, the vineyards here produce top quality grapes that bring to life a wine that evokes the aromas of red berry fruits.
Three fine regional wines classified as IGT (Indicazione Geografica Tipica – Protected Geographic Indication) are produced by this renowned winery:
Castiglioni is a DOCG-classified Chianti (Denominazione di Origine Controllata e Garantita – Designation of Guaranteed Origin), produced by the Frescobaldi Family with Sangiovese and Merlot grapes.
For the production of Rosato Saltagrilli IGT, the winery makes use of Sangiovese, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon grapes. This wine is an ideal accompaniment to cold platters as well as pastas and vegetable timbales.
Tenuta di Castiglioni is produced with Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Sangiovese, which together bring to a life an grand wine that combines a pleasantly fresh experience with spiced notes and an enveloping body.
Giramonte is an ideal wine for a lunch or dinner where grilled meats and structured cheeses are prevalent. This is a well-rounded and deep wine produced with Merlot and Sangiovese grapes that have aged for 15 months in wooden barrels.
