Product description

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. A Cru born in 1974 and produced only in the best years with Sangiovese grapes from the homonymous vineyard 400m above sea level. An intense wine with grand aromas and a long, noble persistence, Montesodi has always been considered the highest expression of Sangiovese at Castello Nipozzano. Montesodi is immediately characterised by an extremely elegant bright ruby red colour. The bouquet confirms its appeal. Opening with notes of cherry blossom, violet and hibiscus, followed by fruits such as blackcurrant and blackberry. This gives way to an elegant spiciness, with notes of liquorice and pepper. The wine has excellent minerality and fantastically well-integrated light graphite notes. The palate opens with freshness and develops into greater density. The tannins are silky and mature, and the finish is long, juicy and enticing.
