REGION: Tuscany, Italy
Frescobaldi is to Tuscany what the Rothschilds are to Bordeaux: one of the truly great families of the region. 30 generations and counting, with family members directly involved with the production of every single one of their wines. Castelgiocondo is their flagship, and meticulous care is taken with its grapes to extract the maximum of flavour and balance. The result is serious, yet wonderfully appealing and lively.
