Producer Note
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 vineyards are located on the CastelGiocondo Estate in Montalcino. Campo ai Sassi Rosso di Montalcino displays the same characteristics as Brunello, but in a more youthful, less complicated manner. It is produced from the same grape, Sangiovese, but from vineyards with vines that have very deep roots and yield wines which are aromatic and elegant, and less tannic than the Brunello. These vineyards were first planted in 1990 and then recently replanted, according to the terroir. Winemaking
The wine was fermented in stainless steel, followed by a maturation on the skins for 16 days. A malolactic fermentation took place immediately after the alcoholic fermentation. A proportion of the wine was matured in 80 hl and 100 hl Slavonian oak casks, while the remaining proportion was aged in French oak barrels for 12 months. The wine then received a further four months bottle-ageing. Tasting Note
Intense aromas of blackcurrant and herbal notes on the nose, lead to the complex palate of mint, liquorice, cardamom with a hint of violet. Smooth, but well structured on the palate, this intense wine has a wonderful persistency on the finish. Serving Suggestion
