Description

A great supple and spicy Tuscan red wine

The estate

One of the six pillars of the family's estates, Frescobaldi - Tenuta Castiglioni is located in the hills of Val di Pesa, between Siena and Florence, in the heart of Tuscany. Elegant and fruity, with a contemporary style typical of this area of Tuscany, the wines of Frescobaldi Tenuta Castiglioni are made from Merlot, Sangiovese and Cabernet Franc grapes.

The vineyard

Tenuta Frescobaldi di Castiglioni 2020 is an IGT Toscana wine that stems from vines grown on the Val di Pesa hillsides, where the soils are made up of pebbly and clay formations.

The vintage

After a mild winter, the month of April was cool, dry and sunny, advancing an early budburst on the vine. Flowering took place in the last week of May in perfect conditions. Moderate rainfall spells from April to August took place with slight peaks in the month of June, advancing the smooth progress of the growth cycle. The veraison, which began in the last week of August, was followed by a progressive ripening during September.

Winemaking and ageing

After the harvest, the grapes were carefully destemmed. They were then transferred into thermo-regulated steel vats. Vinification was accompanied by light and regular pumping over. After alcoholic and malolactic fermentation, the wine was aged in barrels for 12 months. Once in the bottle, the wine was aged for a further 2 months before being put on the market.
