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 of Nipozzano are found to the east of Florence in the heart of the prestigious Chianti Rufina territory, on the mountainous side that overlooks the valley and the river Arno. The balance of altitude, soil type and a cool ventilated microclimate, provides excellent conditions for perfect growth and produces wines of harmonious character and great longevity. Winemaking
The different varieties were fermented separately at 30°C. Fermentation took place for 13 days and the grapes were macerated on the skins for 25 days. The wine was then matured in second and third passage barriques for a period of 24 months, with a further three months in bottle. Tasting Note
The nose opens with dark wild berries, cherry and pleasant floral notes of lilac and chocolate, while the spicy component emerges with nuances of clove and green peppercorn. The textured palate is characterized the stamp of terroir and is underlined by a lively minerality, leading to a finish of intense dark, wild berries. Serving Suggestion
This has the intensity to match wild boar or Porchini mushroom pasta.
