Tenuta di Castiglioni Giramonte 2008

Tenuta di Castiglioni Giramonte 750ml 2008       
Sku: 1652805*

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.

This deeply colored red exudes heavy toast, char, vanilla and clove aromas and flavors. There’s nothing subtle about this high-octane red, which is firm and modern in style. Merlot and Sangiovese. Best from 2013 through 2018. 100 cases imported.-BS
 Vinous 90 points (Aug 2011)
The 2008 Giramonte is impressive for the vintage. Firm yet well-integrated tannins support a core of dark cherries, plums, smoke, French oak and licorice. This is a very pretty, harmonious wine from Frescobaldi. The 2008 Giramonte is 88% Merlot and 12% Sangiovese. The wine spent 16 months in new French oak barrels.
