James Suckling - Jamessuckling.com:

A firm and flavorful red with currant and vanilla aromas and flavors. Full to medium body, round tannins and a cappuccino finish.

Product Description:

"Tenuta Frescobaldi di Castiglioni is an intense ruby-red color with purplish highlights, showing a brilliant clarity and lovely consistency. On the nose, fruit is the protagonist with notes of cherry, currant, strawberry, and blue California plum. Added to these are spicy hints of cinnamon, pepper and nutmeg, roast cocoa, coffee and hazelnut. The palate is warm, supported by a pleasing vein of acidity that makes it fresh. Subtle tannin texture; dense and elegant. Long and persistent, Tenuta Frescobaldi finishes with a pleasant quality of freshness and fruit." - Winery
