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 castle of Nipozzano is the most famous property of the Frescobaldi family. Built around the year 1000 in the heart of the Chianti Rufina area on the hills that overlook the river Arno, it was originally a defensive stronghold. Thanks to the perfect balance of altitude, soil and a cool, ventilated microclimate, the grape varietes enjoy ideal conditions for perfect growth. The wines of the estate have been cherished since Renaissance times for their balance and longevity. Winemaking
The grapes were hand harvested in early October. Fermentation took place in stainless steel tanks at less than 35°C and lasted for 10 days. Maceration lasted for 30 days including the alcoholic fermentation with periodical stirring to obtain maximum colour and softer tannins. The wine went through malolactic fermentation. The wine was aged for 18 months in oak. Tasting Note
