Description

History

The history of the Frescobaldi family in Tuscany is often the history of Tuscany itself; tradition and roots go back as far as 1300, when Dino Frescobaldi, Dante Alighieri’s poet friend, gave him back the first seven cantos of the Divine Comedy, thus allowing him to complete the work. More or less in the same period the family acquires some estates in Chianti starting to produce and market wine. Many centuries later, around 1855, it was they who planted some international vines such as Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Pinot Noir and Chardonnay right here in Tuscany. 1900 was a century of great revolution for Italian agriculture and consequently also for the company; production methods were innovated and new possessions were acquired thanks to the wise guidance of Vittorio, Ferdinando and Leonardo Frescobaldi. Today the baton has passed to Lamberto Frescobaldi, a member of the thirtieth generation of the family, who, thanks to the knowledge acquired, manages the family assets. Castello di Pomino dates back to the 1500s and stands at an altitude of 500-700 m a.s.l., a height which is usually difficult to find in the hills of central Tuscany and which allows strong day-night temperature variations suitable for the cultivation of white grape varieties and Pinot noir.

Grapes used

Pinot noir 100%

Production method

Immediately after the harvest, the Pinot Noir is placed in 60 hl oak truncated cone containers at a controlled temperature and with manual punching down. The total maceration time is around two weeks and after this procedure the wine also undergoes malolactic fermentation in French oak barriques. Subsequently the wine ages for 15 months in barriques and for other months in the bottle.

Alcohol content

13%

Tasting notes

At sight the color is ruby red. Perfumed and intense on the nose; typical notes of grapes of small red fruits such as currants, strawberries, blackberries and raspberries stand out, sensations of violet flowers and notes of spice such as vanilla, tobacco and licorice. Medium-bodied in the mouth, not aggressive and well balanced between soft and hard components, with a present final acidity and light tannins. Fine and elegant.

Possible combinations

Given its finesse and body and balanced tannins, Pomino Pinot Noir is also perfect as an aperitif or wine to drink by the glass for fans of the genre. If combined with first courses with meat sauces or fresh but tasty cheeses, it is able to express its maximum potential. Excellent pairing also with white meat dishes, better if slightly spiced.

The history of the Frescobaldi family in Tuscany is often the story of Tuscany itself; tradition and roots date back as far as the 1300s, when Dino Frescobaldi, a poet friend of Dante Alighieri, returned to him the first seven cantos of the Divine Comedy, allowing him to complete the work. Around the same time, the family acquired some estates in the Chianti area and began producing and selling wine. Many centuries later, in about 1855, they were the ones to plant some international grape varieties such as Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Pinot Noir, and Chardonnay right here in Tuscany. The 1900s was a century of great revolution for Italian agriculture and therefore for the company as well; production methods were innovated and new possessions were acquired thanks to the wise guidance of Vittorio, Ferdinando, and Leonardo Frescobaldi. Today, the baton has been passed to Lamberto Frescobaldi, a member of the thirtieth generation of the family, who, armed with the knowledge he has acquired, manages the family heritage. The company boasts among its estates Castello di Nipozzano and Castello di Pomino in the Chianti Rufina area, Rémole alle Sieci, Tenuta di Perano in Gaiole in Chianti, one of the family's most recent acquisitions, Gorgona on the homonymous penitentiary island, Tenuta Castiglioni in Montespertoli, Tenuta Castelgiocondo in Montalcino, Tenuta Ammiraglia in the Maremma, and the latest addition Tenuta Calimaia in Montepulciano. The Frescobaldi family manages and owns Ornellaia in Bolgheri.
