Winery notes (2019 Vintage)
"Chianti Castiglioni 2019 is an intensely fruity wine. It has a bright ruby-red colour with tinges of purple. The bouquet is rich with aromas of cherry, blackberry and wild strawberry followed by elegant Mediterranean scents. On the palate, its soft, elegant and vibrant taste is immediately apparent. The finish is intensely and pleasantly aromatic."

5 Stars & 93/100 Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, October 2019 (2018 Vintage)
"This is a splendid expression of Chianti Classico; the inviting bouquet shows dark plum, sweet raspberry, almond, thyme and subtle spice aromas, leading to a succulent palate that’s finely texture and refreshing. A modern style offering sweet fruit intensity with classic chalky tannic structure. At its best: now to 2025."
Jon Thorsen, reversewinesnob.com, March 2019 (2017 Vintage)
"The 2017 Marchesi de Frescobaldi Castiglioni Chianti opens with a very pleasing mix of inviting aromas like red cherry, black cherry, mint, apple, violets and cedar. Tasting reveals one smooth Chianti with a lot of the rough edges you often find smoothed off nicely. Sweet and tart red cherry and berry flavours intermingle pleasantly with spice, dried herbs and touches of apple in this medium-bodied wine. Some licorice and cola notes lead into the long, dry finish. This is a really easy to drink Chianti that you can’t help but love!"
