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. Ideal with game such as hare and boar, with roasted or sautéed beef, roast of pork, as well as with full-flavoured cheeses. 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"
