FRESCOBALDI

No other Italian winery can boast the history, prestige and vision of Marchesi de' FrescobaldiA Florentine family dedicated for thirty generations and for 700 years to the production of great wines, with the constant aim of being the most prestigious Tuscan producer. A reality that has always believed in respect for the territory, focuses on the excellence of its grapes, invests in communication and professionalism of human resources without ever forgetting respect for tradition and openness to research and experimentation. In 1855, first in Tuscany, they planted Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, in the estates of Nipozzano and Pomino. In 1894 they built in Pomino, not far from Florence, the first Italian winery capable of exploiting the natural gravity for the racking of barrels and were distinguished, in the same period, by the introduction of the "specialized vineyard". In 1989 they bought the estate of Castelgiocondo in Montalcino and in 1995 they inaugurated the Tenuta Luce della Vite in Montalcino, to which was added in 2000 the Tenuta Conti Attems in Friuli. Last bright projects concern the control of the Tenuta dell'Ornellaia in Bolgheri in 2005, and in 2011 the inauguration of the modern winery of the Flagship in Maremma.All the wines labeled "Marchesi de' Frescobaldi" are born from the passion, experience, skill and love for an elected territory, Tuscany, which has become the ideal cradle of high quality wines. With a vineyard area that, at the moment, totals almost one thousand hectares, and with an annual production of around seven million bottles, from the Chianti area to that of Pomino, from Montalcino to Maremma, The perfect knowledge of the environment and the uniqueness of terroirs allow to guarantee a constant quality and a strong personality of wines, all - no one excluded - exceptional. Labels, those of the "Marchesi de' Frescobaldi", elegant and harmonious, balanced and engaging, exciting and unique.
