The Tenuta 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 wine's color is a bright and very intense ruby red. Complex to the nose, Giramonte possesses notes of blueberries and ripe blackberries that leave ample room for aromas of thyme, coffee, and dark chocolate. In the mouth, the wine introduces itself with dense and silky tannins, and finishes with persistent toasted hazelnuts and coffee tertiary aromas that bequeath a pleasantly intense sensation. Ideal with all roasts, grills, and barbecues, and with sautéed fillets of beef, but try it with delicate cheeses as well.

TOP 100 WINES OF 2017 #83 - This is a lifted style of red with a concentration of dark fruits and cedar and some spices, too. Full body, layered and flavorful. I appreciate its flamboyance and juiciness. Drink now or hold..December/2017

The 2013 Giramonte, Frescobaldi’s Merlot/Sangiovese blend, is terrific. A rush of raspberry jam, super-ripe red cherry, pomegranate, sweet spice, rose petal and blood orange makes a strong opening statement. Dense, unctuous and bold in personality, the 2013 has a mid-weight sense of structure that keeps things from going too far over the top..April/2018

A blend of 88% Merlot and 12% Sangiovese, this opens with aromas of ripe black currant, cocoa and a hint of crushed aromatic herb. The concentrated palate delivers blackberry jam, espresso and toasted hazelnut alongside fine-grained tannins. Drink through 2023.
