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.
