Winery notes (2016 Vintage)
"Tenuta Frescobaldi di Castiglioni 2016 is an intense purple colour, with marked aromas of ripe red fruit which give way to notes of black pepper and chocolate. A rich and satisfying structure, matched by a pleasant freshness and good persistence on the palate."
5 Stars & 95/100 Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, November 2018 (2016 Vintage)
"A magnificently styled red, predominantly made from cabernet sauvignon and merlot with small amounts of cabernet franc and sangiovese; the gloriously complex bouquet shows blackcurrant, cedar, vanilla, smoked game and mixed berry compote characters. The palate is concentrated and lavishly textured, delivering loads of delicious flavours together with velvety mouthfeel and a persistent refined finish. At its best: now to 2028."
