Producer Note
Castello Pomino is the hidden gem of Toscana. Pomino DOC is the highest appellation
in Tuscany and only one other producer makes wine from this tiny appellation. The
wine-making story began in Pomino in the 16th century, but it was in the mid 1800s that
Leonia degli Albizzi, wife of Angiolo Frescobaldi brought about significant innovation.
Born in Burgundy, she boldly cultivated Chardonnay and Pinot Nero at this high altitude
and built the first gravity-fed winery. The vines thrived and the elegant Pomino wines
were produced to wide acclaim, first receiving the gold medal at the Paris Expo of
1878. These stylish wines still have a wonderful luminosity, minerality and finesse to this
day. Gambero Rosso awarded Frescobaldi with the prestigious ‘Tre Bicchieri Winery of
the Year Award 2020’, in recognition of its uncompromising commitment to quality and
innovation.
Vineyard
The castle of Pomino is found in the Apennine Mountains to the east of Florence. Its
vineyard is the highest in Tuscany, at altitudes of up to 737 metres above sea level, and
it enjoys a fresh and well-ventilated microclimate. The Frescobaldi family first planted
Chardonnay here in 1855. After a century and a half, this variety has found its ideal
habitat and produces wines of extraordinary elegance, finesse and minerality. The
current vines have an average age of 21 years and are grown in sandy, clay soils of
good depth.
Winemaking
As soon as the grapes arrive in the cellar, they, and the resulting must, have the least
contact with oxygen possible. The pressing cycles are chosen to allow for a gentle
extraction of the must. Alcoholic fermentation takes place in steel vats with 15% in
French oak barriques to add subtle complexity, all at controlled temperatures. At the
end of the production process, Pomino Bianco is aged in the bottle for a few months
prior to release.
Tasting Note
A delicate and elegant wine with gentle floral aromas combined with fruity notes of
sweet pear, apple, grapefruit and fragrant lemon. Perfectly balanced on the palate,
with a lovely freshness underpinning the green fruit flavours through to an aromatic and
persistent finish.
