COUNTRY: Italy
REGION:Tuscany
BODY:Medium full

A blend of Merlot and Sangiovese.

The Castiglioni Cru Giramonte appears a dense ruby with subtle purplish highlights. The nose immediately surprises with its forcefulness and multi-layered complexity. Fragrant impressions of blueberry, sour cherry, and wild blackberry meld together with intriguing notes of roasted hazelnut, cocoa powder, and espresso. In the mouth, it is full-volumed and velvet-textured, with a graceful suite of tannins that craft a truly elegant structure. The finish, long-lingering and impressively well-proportioned, is laden with pungent impressions of toastiness and roasting espresso bean. Ideal with all roasts, grills, and barbecues, and with saut‚ed fillets of beef, but try it with delicate cheeses as well.
