The Frescobaldi name goes back many centuries into the history of art, culture, trade and finance of Italy in general and Tuscany in particular. From the second half of the last century, the Frescobaldi's were keen players in the development of Tuscan vine-growing They were the first to plants new varieties such as Chardonnay, Cabernet, Merlot and Pinot and to adopt new planting, cultivation a wine-making systems in their properties. From the second half of the 1950's and throughout the 1960's, the company's growth was impressive. In 1989 Frescobaldi bought the Castelgiocondo estate in Montalcino, the largest vine-growing farm in the Brunello area. Although the estates have gone many changes over the years, ownership has never changed hands and still, after 30 generations, is in full control of the Frescobaldi family.

The Frescobaldi name goes back many centuries into the history of art, culture, trade and finance of Italy in general and Tuscany in particular. From the second half of the last century, the Frescobaldi's were keen players in the development of Tuscan vine-growing Although the estates have gone many changes over the years, ownership has never changed hands and still, after 30 generations, is in full control of the Frescobaldi family. One of the major and largest vine growing businesses in Europe, Frescobaldi owns nine estates covering over 1,000 ha of vineyards, all located in excellent areas for fine wines. The Pomino DOC is one of the smallest in Italy and the only one in Tuscany to make prominent use of international varieties; Chardonnay and Pinot Bianco make up the blend of Pomino Bianco and the Pomino Rosso is made from Sangiovese and Pinot Noir. The Pomino Benefizio is fermented and matured in French barriques. Grapes: Chardonnay, Trebbiano and a small proportion of sangiovese Exposure: South-west soil: sandy, clay Density: 5,500 vines per hectare Pruning: Double Guyot Age of Vines: Minimum 20 years Yield: 18HL per hectare Winemaking: The grapes were left to dry on the wines until 3rd week of October and then manually harvested and further dried in the cellars until December. Following this the grapes were softly pressed using horizontal presses and fermented in little casks (Caratelli sigillati), 2/3 filled, at 20C lasting 4 years during which time malolactic fermentation took place. Total ageing of the wine was 4years Colour: Rich, deep amber Serve: Slightly chilled as an aperitif or with foie gras, pastries and dried nuts (hazelnuts and almonds) Taste: The bouquet offers scents of dried nuts, especially hazelnuts and almonds, which mingle with spicy notes of cinnamon, tapering off gracefully with hints of dates and dried apricots. The entry on the palate is full and enticing with a seductive creaminess, sweet but not overwhelming, with a delicious, elegantly fruity finale. Quite unique!
