FRESCOBALDI - CULTIVATING TOSCANA DIVERSITY
The history of the Frescobaldi family starts over a thousand years ago and is closely connected with the history of Tuscany.
Creativity and the pursuit of excellence were handed down through the centuries to all the generations of the family.
Frescobaldi's aim is for the family estates, with their vineyards, to be the expression of this diversity and the wines to reflect each other each individual terroir, respecting nature and atuthenticity. The richness of Tuscany lies in its diversity, in the union between north and south, mountains and sea, cities and countryside, to which men and women dedicate their live's work.
Frescobaldi embodies the essence of Tuscany, its extraordinary vocation for viticulture and the diversity of its territories. Fescobaldi's uniqueness stems precisely from the representation of this diversity, from its eight estates and from wines which express a kaleidoscope of aromas and sensations, springing from the characteristics of each individual terroir.
The Castiglioni estate has been a defining symbol of the Frescobaldi family’s wine-growing tradition since 1300. Production of Tuscan wines, enjoyed by both the papal court and English court of Henry VIII in the 16th century, began here.
Nipozzano Riserva is the emblematic wine of Castello Nipozzano, the historic Frescobaldi estate located a few miles north-east of Florence, Nipozzano Riserva is symbolic of the Tuscan wine-making tradition and the continuing link with the terroir.
Nipozzano Riserva boasts the characteristics of strength and finesse. Its intense ruby red colour gives it a bold and elegant character. Red berries and notes of ripe citrus fruit give way to a delicately fruity nose, followed by elegant notes of violet. This is all completed with a slight spiciness. The palate expresses itself with an intriguing, harmonious complexity. Nipozzano is dense and persistent.
