The rich Tenuta Frescobaldi di Castiglioni, this estate’s iconic wine, is clearly in a modern key, but holds fast to the qualities of its local terroir. The labels of the bottles prior to the 2009 vintage presented the caption as “Tenuta di Castiglioni”
2014 was a complex year characterised by very variable weather. However, the sowing of green manure, the working of the soil to facilitate the absorption of organic substances, shoot thinning practices, and late and frequent leaf pruning allowed the grapes to reach optimal ripeness. The lands in Castiglioni, known for their particular “terroir”, have once again produced a beautiful vintage.
Tenuta Frescobaldi di Castiglioni 2014 is ruby red in colour and possesses marked red berry fruit scents, which are followed and joined by toasted notes of cocoa, coffee and tobacco. Gifted of a pleasant freshness and satisfying structure, the wine is warm, soft and round.
