Tenuta Frescobaldi di Castiglioni Toscana 2014 Review

This Super Tuscan Bordeaux blend leans more New World, stylistically, while maintaining balance, elegance, and complexity throughout. Rich, jammy black cherry fruit reveals energetic undertones of iron-laced earth, tart cherry, turned soil, and fresh herbs. All carry through to the palate, sweet spice amped up by grippy tannins and fading out to a long, sweet caramel finish.
