Tenuta Frescobaldi di Castiglioni Toscana 2017

Winery Information:
A Florentine family with thirty generations dedicated to the production of great Tuscan wines in five estates in Tuscany. A Frescobaldi style that brings together tradition and innovation. With the goal of being the most prestigious Tuscan wine producer, Frescobaldi firmly believes in respecting the local land, focusing on the highest quality for its grapes, and investing in communications. The Frescobaldis own over 1,000 ha of vineyards, all located in excellent areas for the production of fine wines. Directly manager by its family members, Frescobaldi produces almost 7 million bottles and the wines are exported to over 65 countries throughout the world. The Frescobaldi name goes back 700 years and is deeply connected with the history of art, culture, trade, finance and wine in Italy.
Viticulture:
Spur pruned cordon vines with an average age of 12 years old. High density planting with 5,500 vines per hectare in the vineyards.
Soil:
Clay, medium textured
Vinification:
Temperature controlled fermentation in stainless steel tanks at 30C lasting 12 days. Maceration on skins for 4 week. The wine underwent malolactic fermentation and was matured in oak barrique for 12 months.
Tasting Note:
Tenuta Frescobaldi di Castiglioni 2010 is an intense ruby-red color with purplish highlights, showing a brilliant clarity and lovely consistency. On the nose, fruit is the protagonist with notes of cherry, currant, strawberry, and blue California plum. Added to these are spicy hints of cinnamon, pepper and nutmeg, roast cocoa, coffee and hazelnut. The palate is warm, supported by a pleasing acidity that makes it fresh. Subtle tannin texture; dense and elegant. Long and persistent, Tenuta Frescobaldi finishes with a pleasant quality of freshness and fruit.
Every day serving suggestion:
Ideal with succulent steak, hearty stews or with a cheese board at the end of a meal.
Awards:
Wine Spectator- 93 points

Can you explain your shipping charges?

We charge the amount the courier charges us to deliver the wines. In the majority of cases this is £10.00 for a dozen wines. For local delivery we charge £5.00 as we can often do this ourselves, by local we mean Milton Keynes.

Couriers charge by weight and size and a case of wines is both heavy and bulky and so the costs are fairly high. The charges are the same if you are buying 1 bottle or 6 bottles but they change if you go over 6 bottles due the the excess weight and size. Couriers also charge a fee to cover fuel excess and this all goes towards the total cost not to mention the 20% VAT to be added to everything.

Currently if someone orders a dozen wines they are charged £10.00 but if they order 24 bottles the charge is the same!

If you wish to have your wines shipped to other countries the costs are extreemly high and often not worth paying for. The cost for example to ship to the USA for a dozen wines would be £100.00 for the shipping alone! Therefore we have taken the decision not to ship any wines outside of the UK.

 

What is your minimum order?

The minimum order is 1 bottle! I prefer it if people order more and you get better value with the delivery if you do this too!

 

What if I want to send wine as a gift?

No problem, we will send to your preferred address and even include a card free of charge!

We have two kinds of cards a blank one and a Thank you one. However if you want a Valentines one or a birthday card or anyother type of card please let us know. We will write your personal greeting and even include the soppy stuff. We don't charge for the cards as its our way of thanking you for choosing us to send a gift to your loved one. 

 

What about a discount?

I may be able to take a little off the price if you ask nicely and there is a large enough order. Please do not ask for a discount on any orders under 12 bottles.  Email me with your requirements and I will let you know if I can do anything. However the best way to get a discount is to sign up for the newsletter as there is often special offers given away to newsletter subscribers.
