“The colour is a very deep, intense ruby-red colour. The bouquet is intriguing and varied, combining blackcurrant and cherry aromas with spicy flavours of black pepper and vanilla. In the mouth it is full-bodied and enveloping, with elegant toasted notes that create an intense and harmonious finish.”~Winery Notes

The Marchesi de' Frescobaldi is one of Italy's oldest wineries, with a history dating to the 1300s. The family has included medieval knights, bankers, lawyers and patrons of the arts. The Marchesi de' Frescobaldi is one of the most significant wine producers in Italy, with nine estates--and roughly 2,500 acres--in Tuscany. The family has been growing wine since the late 19th century, when they became the first in Tuscany to import and plant French vine cuttings. Because they have been producing wines for more than 700 years, to experience Frescobaldi is to glimpse the history of Florence, from the Middle Ages to the present day.
Wine Spectator has ranked many of their offerings in the 90s and their wines are consistently listed in the magazine's Top 100 Wines of the Year, encouraging wine enthusiasts from around the globe to become familiar with some of Italy's finest wines.
