A Florentine family with thirty generations dedicated to the production of great wines across six Tuscan estates. The Frescobaldi style brings together tradition and innovation. With the goal of being the most prestigious Tuscan wine producer, Frescobaldi firmly believes in respecting the local land while focusing on the highest quality grapes for its wines. The Frescobaldis own over 1,000 hectares of vineyards, all located in excellent areas for the production of fine wines. Directly managed by its family members, the Frescobaldi name is deeply connected with the history of art, culture, trade, finance and wine in Italy. Vineyard

The grapes come from a 15 hectare single vineyard called "Ripe al Convento", situated at the highest point of the Castelgiocondo estate. There are two types of soil on the estate, the first is rich in sand with a high presence of calcium, while the second is calcareous, rich in both clay and calcium with a more alkaline pH. Winemaking
The grapes were hand harvested with cluster selection and pressed using a soft horizontal presses. Fermentation took place in stainless steel at 30°C and lasted 10 days, with maceration lasting 30 days. The wine then underwent a malolactic fermentation. It was matured for five years prior to its release - by law a minimum of two years in wood and six months in bottle. The Frescobaldis use a mix of Slavonian oak casks and French oak barrels.
