TASTING NOTES

Frescobaldi is one of the most renowned historic wineries in Italy and the world, a milestone for the past and present of Tuscan wine. With centuries of history, more than 1200 hectares of vineyards, ancient houses and castles, as well as an avant-garde entrepreneurial vision, the Frescobaldi winery is a reference in the production of elegant wines and ancient charm. Tenuta Calimaia is a project that marks the return of the Frescobaldi to Montepulciano, in the soft hills between the Val di Chiana and the Val d'Orcia extending for about 70 hectares, in one of the areas historically dedicated to the production of Vino Nobile di Montepulciano. The clayey soils and higher temperatures make the wines rich in tannins and particularly suitable for aging. Nobile di Montepulciano Riserva is made up of 90% Sangiovese grapes, locally called Prugnolo Gentile, and 10% of complementary red grape varieties. Once harvested by hand, the grapes are vinified in stainless steel tanks at a controlled temperature and fermentation is carried out spontaneously. The maceration on the skins allows a perfect extraction of the polyphenolic substances, assisted by frequent pumping over in the initial stages of fermentation, interrupted by a delestage in the intermediate phase, and then resume in the final phase. The malolactic fermentation is completed in steel before winter. The aging in oak barrels takes place for 24 months. Before being placed on the market, Nobile di Montepulciano Riserva ages in bottle for the next 4 months. Tenuta Calimaia Nobile di Montepulciano has an intense ruby red color. The nose offers evident notes of red fruits: cherry at the beginning, followed by intense notes of aromatic herbs and spices, including sage, cardamom and pink pepper. On the nose the dark chocolate is accompanied by hints of licorice. The palate begins with its generous body, voluminous and fresh at the same time. The tannic texture is dense and free of harshness. Perfect with red meat roasts or mixed grills. To fully appreciate its style, this wine should be served at a serving temperature of 16/18 ºC. Read more Read less
THE WINERY

Frescobaldi

With a history dating back to the Middle Ages, when Florence was the most important commercial and cultural crossroads in the modern world, the Frescobaldi family has been established as one of the leading wineries in Tuscany for centuries. The Frescobaldi vineyards cover a total of 1,200 hectares, spread over several estates, each with its own characteristic microclimate and terroir. The distinctive strength of this winery lies in the ability of its managers to enhance the diversity and uniqueness of the Tuscan territory. Agronomists and oenologists work together to cultivate the vines in an environmentally friendly and sustainable manner. Involved in this enterprise for 700 years, the Frescobaldi family has skilfully kept up with innovations, interpreting the most prized red wine labels with absolute mastery, including the Chianti, the Brunello di Montalcino and the Rosso di Montalcino. But all wines from the Frescobaldi winery contain a kaleidoscopic bouquet of aromas and flavours that give them an exceptional personality, perceptible at a glance. Name and address of producer/distributor: Frescobaldi - Via Aretina 120, 50065 Sieci Firenze (FI). Products from this winery should be stored in a cool, dry place away from heat sources.
