The Tenuta di Castiglioni, the Frescobaldi family’s oldest estate, brought forth, in 1999, Giramonte, a rare and exclusive Cru. The qualities of its soil, an ideal microclimate, and rigorous selection of the fruit ensure, year after year, extraordinary consistency of quality. The result is a wine of great richness and intensity, silk-smooth, and with an almost endless progression and finish.
The wine appears a dense ruby with subtle purplish highlights. The nose immediately surprises with its forcefulness and multi-layered complexity. Fragrant impressions of blueberry, sour cherry, and wild blackberry meld together with intriguing notes of roasted hazelnut, cocoa powder, and espresso. In the mouth, it is full-volumed and velvet-textured, with a graceful suite of tannins that craft a truly elegant structure. The finish, long-lingering and impressively well-proportioned, is laden with pungent.
