92 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon comes across as a bit more reticent and inward next to the superb 2008, but it, too, is a gorgeous wine. Dark red fruit, licorice, smoke and tar are some of the nuances that flow from this layered, gorgeous Cabernet Sauvignon. The 2009 was bottled just two months ago. It will almost certainly be even better in a few years’ time. A mid-weight, gracious wine, the 2009 should drink well to age 20 or so. In 2009 the blend includes 1.5% Petit Verdot. Anticipated maturity: 2019-2029.

94 Points & "Editor's Choice" - Wine Enthusiast Magazine:
A huge load with sophistication and style to go with tons of raw power. Tobacco, balsam wood and pure blackberry aromas are stylish and enticing. Shows body and structure on the palate along with black fruit, mocha, chocolate and toast flavors. Long and heavenly on the finish. Drink now through 2015. M.S.  (12/15/2011)

93 Points - Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar:
"(100% garnacha):  Inky violet.  A hypnotic bouquet evokes black and blue fruits, incense, smoky oak spices and potpourri.  Deeply pitched but energetic, offering sappy blackberry and boysenberry flavors that stain the palate.  Becomes spicier with and picks up notes of candied lavender and vanilla.  The bright finish echoes with floral and spice notes, finishing with excellent cut."

90 Points - Wine Spectator Magazine:
"Plush yet restrained, this alluring red delivers rich, ripe flavors of cassis and huckleberry, framed by chocolate and smoke, supported by firm, smooth tannins and lively acidity. Very polished, in the modern style. Drink now through 2013. 350 cases imported." –TM (Jul 15, 2011)

92 Points - Wine Spectator:
"This dark, compact red leads with a floral note to the racy cassis and cherry puree fruit, well-integrated with fine tannins and bright acidity. Offers a long finish of fruit, mineral and tobacco. Malbec, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. Best from 2014 through 2018. 8,583 cases made." – NW (Nov 15, 2013)

CASE PRICE = $18.99 per bottle (add 12+ quantity to your basket)
Notes from the Winemaker:

The rich Tenuta Frescobaldi di Castiglioni, this estate’s iconic wine, is clearly in a modern key, but holds fast to the qualities of its local terroir. The labels of the bottles prior to the 2009 vintage presented the caption as “Tenuta di Castiglioni”.

Tenuta Frescobaldi di Castiglioni 2011 boasts a splendid purple-red, with violet highlights. The nose lays out intense aromas of bright red fruit, such as wild strawberry and redcurrant, followed by lovely, pungent notes of anise and cinnamon plus subtle hints of cocoa powder. In the mouth, a lengthy, slow-paced progression is accompanied by superb structure, an emphatic acidity, and dense, well-integrated tannins. The finish is nicely fruit-laden.

Food Pairing: Ideal with game such as hare and boar, with roasted or sautéed beef, roast of pork, as well as with full-flavoured cheeses.

Variety: 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot, 15% Cabernet Franc, 5% Sangiovese

Alcohol by volume: 13.5%

92 Points -
James Suckling:
"This is a solid red with blueberry and currant character. Full body, with silky and chewy tannins and a long, long finish. Tangy acidity with a citrus undertone. A blend of cabernet sauvignon, merlot, cabernet franc, and sangiovese. Better in 2015." –JS (September 30th, 2013)
