Marchesi de' Frescobaldi Tenuta Frescobaldi di Castiglioni 2012

SKU 12758


Tenuta Frescobaldi 2012 is purplish with ruby-red highlights. The intesne and persistent nose opens with notes of blueberry and cherry. Floral notes of rose follow, and spicy scents of black pepper, chocolate and jus de viande. The tannin texture is very dense; generous body. The finish is dominated by very, but not overly, ripe fruit and sustained by a vivacious vein of acidity. Serving Suggestions: Ideal with game such as hare and boar, with roasted or sautéed beef, roast of pork, as well as with full-flavoured cheeses..
