Mixture of red and brown colour. Notes of coffee and wood taste.I liked the acidity of 2018.
I like it with the meat we ate.
I took the Tenuta Castiglioni Castiglioni Chianti with my couple in a romantic plan.

4/5

Thanks to its outstanding local climate, Chianti Castiglioni mirrors perfectly the qualities of its local growing area. Smooth-textured and eminently fruity, it displays a fine clean-edged structure.

I had it with my friends at home.
Pretty cherry colour, medium opacity. Especially noticeable smoky aromas in this Marchesi di Frescobaldi. It tastes a lot like toasts, very nice.
It wasn't well paired with food, but the wine was good and tasty.
