Chianti Castiglioni 2018 features a beautiful ruby-red colour with elegant purple hues. Delightful fruity notes immediately emerge on the nose: cherry, blackcurrant and raspberry. Floral and fragrant notes such as violet make an appearance later on. On the palate, Chianti Castiglioni is lively, soft and enveloping. The finish is long and persistent, with the after-taste confirming the fruity aromas previously detected on the nose. Pair with full-flavoured dishes such as pappardelle pasta in a meat sauce, as well as roast chicken, sautéed beef with vegetables, and medium-aged cheeses.

Full of rich, dark cherry and plum fruit, this red is balanced and charming, with accents of earth and iron adding detail as this winds down on the finish. Drink now through 2023.

The Frescobaldi 2018 Chianti Castiglioni shows lots of primary intensity with wild berry, plum and even a touch of sweet peach. This is a lean-bodied red wine that offers some of the earthy tones you can expect of Sangiovese, with potting soil and a touch of Mediterranean rosemary or lavender essence. This is an informal wine to pair with a quick plate of late-night pasta.
