  • Chianti Classico

"This is a splendid expression of Chianti Classico; the inviting bouquet shows dark plum, sweet raspberry, almond, thyme and subtle spice aromas, leading to a succulent palate that’s finely texture and refreshing. A modern style offering sweet fruit intensity with classic chalky tannic structure." Sam Kim

Marchesi de’ Frescobaldi, a Florentine family with thirty generations dedicated to the production of great Tuscan wines. Frescobaldi's style brings together tradition and innovation. They firmly believe in respecting the local land, focusing on the highest quality grapes, and investing in communications and the professional calibre of their personnel. Their goal is to be the most prestigious Tuscan wine producer, exclusively dedicated to exalting the diversity of their terroirs. In 2017, Frescobaldi was nominated as the “Wine Family of the Year” by the Meininger, the german publishing house.

"The little joys of life, the pleasure of flavours and taste – these are the sensations Tuscany offers, and which Frescobaldi wishes to dedicate to whoever sees in wine a culture beyond the vine and the grape. The dream of my family is to share our work, our emotions and our passion through our wines, to share a life dedicated to understanding and developing these terroirs, inspired by the spirit of Tuscany, the art of what is beautiful and what is good. One thousand years of family history are a unique and incomparable treasure of knowledge and tradition. It is our duty to share this passion with future generations, passing on our love for these eternal places, these eternal hills." Frescobaldi
