Product Notes

Opulent, oaky notes with flavours of cherry and coffee through to a smooth and firm finish.

Tasting Notes

The complex bouquet has a fruity attack, with notes reminiscent of blackberry and sour cherries, giving way to elegant hints of vanilla, tobacco and white pepper. Warm, soft and round on the palate, with ripe fruity notes that echo the nose, fine, intense tannins and a delicately spiced finish.

About the Winery

Frescobaldi is one of the most authentic Italian wines that you will find today because of its impressive 700-year-old history. This family played a vital role in the history of Florence city and has been crafting excellent Tuscan fine wines for a long time. Many centuries ago, the first Frescobaldi family members started as bankers, but then evolved to become the names behind some of the significant structures of Florence. The diversity of Tuscany is clearly visible in the Frescobaldi wine label.The family estates of Frescobaldi grow grapes and olives across Tuscany. Each and every terroir is given a lot of importance here; therefore, the product reflects the characteristics of the land where it is grown.

The diversity of the terroirs can be understood well when we study more about the seven groups of estates of this family. They are:

Perano Estate – Located right in the middle of the Chianti Classico region, this is an estate that is known for its exceptional quality of red varietals such as Sangiovese. The soil quality and climatic conditions here are of top-notch quality.

Nipozzano Estate – Located on the mountain slopes of the Chianti Rufina area, this estate has a fantastic view of the Arno River Valley. All of this adds to the unique character of the Nippozzano wines crafted here.

Pomino Estate – Located right in the middle of the Florence Mountains, the wines here have a tinge of mineral content that you cannot ignore.

Castelgiocondo Estate – Located close to Montalcino, this estate is known for its exquisite cuisine and its authentic Sangiovese grapes.

Ammiraglia Estate – Due to its proximity to the Tyrrhenian Coast, this estate located in the Maremma Estate, is known for producing wines that are fresh.

Remole – Located to the east of Florence, the Old House of Remole is the venue for the family’s historic gatherings.
