Product Details

Code: FRES006

Frescobaldi is a historic Italian wine producer located in Tuscany. It has several estates spread throughout the region. The history of Frescobaldi dates back to the early 1300s, when the family began making wine at Tenuta di Castigliona, southwest of Florence. It became famous in the 1400s for supplying wines to Renaissance artists like Donatello, and Frescobaldi wines were served to the Papal Court and the English Court of King Henry VIII. 

This wine derives from pure winemaking of the finest Sangiovese grapes and it is the result of a rigorous selection of only Sangiovese grapes in the vineyard, where all the characteristics necessary to enhance this ancient vine are scrupulously respected: the ideal altitude, the draining soils and the south-west exposure. It is a wine of great structure, elegant, balanced, with intense aromas and great finesse.

Bright, rich ruby-red hue. On the nose, fruity notes dominate, ranging from raspberry to blackcurrant, with vague hints of blueberry. Elegant floral notes emerge, offering striking and surprising scents of violet. Spicy tertiary notes are then released, due to the lengthy ageing process. Cinnamon, pepper and leather combine in an experience of extreme elegance, finishing on a balsamic note. The wine envelops the mouth completely and impresses with it's balance, it's dense tannic texture and it's minerality, as well as it's long persistent finish.
