2015 TENUTA FRESCOBALDI DI CASTIGLIONI TOSCANA
When one of Tuscany’s most respected houses that has more than 700 years of winemaking heritage, it can take a lot to stand out and above your own previous accomplishments. Their 2015 Tenuta Frescobaldi Castiglioni is the complete package and it’s everything that you’d desire in a classic Super Tuscan. The wine is concentrated and poised, but without giving up an inch in terms of elegance and antiquity. It also doesn’t hurt that the 2015 vintage rivals 1997 for the best ever in Tuscany, with an overall vintage score of 97 points by the Wine Spectator. Their vintage report describes the 2015 as producing wines that are “Ripe and opulent, with plenty of fruit and flesh covering the solid structure.” Don’t let the value price dissuade you… This wine performs at an exceptionally high level and it’s one of the most memorable Tuscans that I’ve tasted this year, at any price.
The 2015 arose from Estate Vineyards in Montespertoli, which is an area located about 12 miles Southwest of Florence in Italy’s Iconic Tuscany region. The blend beautifully projects Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, blended with a small amount of Cabernet Franc and Sangiovese. The wine absolutely embodies the best qualities of their Estate and the exceptional vintage. I strongly recommend making room in the cellar for this one.
