The 2017 Marchesi de Frescobaldi Castiglioni Chianti opens with a very pleasing mix of inviting aromas like red cherry, black cherry, mint, apple, violets and cedar. Tasting reveals one smooth Chianti with a lot of the rough edges you often find smoothed off nicely. Sweet and tart red cherry and berry flavors intermingle pleasantly with spice, dried herbs and touches of apple in this medium-bodied wine. Some licorice and cola notes lead into the long, dry finish. This is a really easy to drink Chianti that you can't help but love!
