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. Nipozzano Vecchie Viti has been selected by the Frescobaldi family to continue the tradition of reserving a Private Collection for its new productions. It originates from the oldest vines of Castello Nipozzano, which have a deep root structure. This highly complex, harmonious wine is matured for 24 months in oak barrels in accordance with the ancient Tuscan tradition. Vecchie Viti is characterised by an intense and brilliant ruby ​​red colour. On the nose, floral and fruity notes are perfectly integrated with spiciness. Dog-rose and violet stand out above all, and are balanced with hints of small red berries. A persistent balsamic quality and an elegant toasting complete the olfactory notes. On the palate, it has a silky, fine tannic texture. The acidic component is perfectly balanced with the alcohol component. The finish is long and persistent.
