88 points - The 2009 Toscana is a highly attractive, juicy wine well suited to near-term drinking. It shows plenty of plump fruit in a soft, approachable style. The 2009 Toscana is 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Franc and 10% Sangiovese. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2017.
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”
