A Florentine family with thirty generations dedicated to the production of great wines across six Tuscan estates. The Frescobaldi style brings together tradition and innovation. With the goal of being the most prestigious Tuscan wine producer, Frescobaldi firmly believes in respecting the local land while focusing on the highest quality grapes for its wines. The Frescobaldis own over 1,000 hectares of vineyards, all located in excellent areas for the production of fine wines. Directly managed by its family members, the Frescobaldi name is deeply connected with the history of art, culture, trade, finance and wine in Italy.
The grapes were softly pressed. Fermentation took place in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks for 12 days. Maceration lasted 20 days for the Merlot and 15 days for the Sangiovese. Malolactic fermentation took place in barriques immediately following alcoholic fermentation. The wine was aged for 14 months in new barriques.
