Features
  • THE ESTATE OF POMINO - Dating from 1500, the year the castle of the same name was built. From the beginning this estate has been famous for its ideal winemaking location. In documentation from the year 1716, the Grand Duke Cosimo III de' Medici identified the four most highly prized territories of Tuscany for the production of wines - the notice is considered the precursor of the modern “DOC” (Denominazione di Origine Controllata, or Controlled Designation of Origin)
  • THE CASTLE OF NIPOZZANO - The ancient defensive stronghold of Florence from the year 1000, the castle of Nipozzano is the most celebrated and historic property of the Frescobaldi family. According to popular belief Nipozzano means “without a well” - testimony to the area's lack of water and ideal circumstances for the cultivation of grapevines. The first documentation about the renowned wines of Nipozzano dates from the Renaissance when great artists such as Donatello and Michelozzo Michelozzi regularly purchased wine from the estate. A unique feature of the territory is attributed to the foresight of an ancestor of the Frescobaldi family who, in 1855 invested 1,000 florins to begin the cultivation of varieties previously unknown in Tuscany such as Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. After more than a century of patient care, these magnificent vines produce the great wine of the estate, Mormoreto.
