A STORY TO SHARE
Property of the family since the 11th century, Castiglioni is the point of origin of wine production for the Frescobaldis. Documentation indicates that wines were being produced here as early as 1300. The estate extends along the ancient Via di Castiglioni, built by the Romans to unify northern Tuscany and Rome. The area was already famous in those times for the quality of its agricultural harvests and was for centuries at the center of heavy trade traffic and chosen as the site for luxury Roman villas. The coat of arms of the Frescobaldi family, with the crown, the shield and three fortresses, represents Castiglioni as well, in remembrance and recognition of the 700 years of wine-making history which began here at this very estate.
THE TERROIR OF CASTIGLIONI
Castiglioni is placed among the hills to the southwest of Florence in Val di Pesa. The fertile and varied soils are composed of both rock and clay, ideal conditions for the cultivation of the elegant Sangiovese, as well as for the robust and vivacious Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Cabernet Franc. All of the vineyards on the estate enjoy a warm and dry microclimate with afternoon breezes that arrive from the Tyrrhenian Sea. Here the grapes mature more rapidly and completely giving the wines notes of intense fruitiness, a marked smoothness and a refined structure.
WINES OF UNIQUE CHARACTER
Saltagrilli: a rosè of character, intense and assertive aromas.
Tenuta Frescobaldi di Castiglioni: from the most ancient property of the family, a contemporary expression of Tuscany. The cool soils and warm, ventilated climate favour a perfect maturation and make this a rich and smooth wine with intense notes of fruit.
Giramonte: from the best Merlot vineyard of the Frescobaldi family, in the heart of the most storied family estates. A powerful, fascinating wine, with great longevity, produced only in a very limited quantity.
