Castello Nipozzano - Frescobaldi
Castello di Nipozzano - the oldest property of the Frescobaldi family
For 700 years the Frescobaldi family has embodied Tuscany in its essence. Already in the Renaissance, their wines were drunk at many European farms. The Frescobaldi family owes its important position among the best known European wine producers to the combination of terroir and its innovative spirit. Noble grape varieties such as Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Chardonnay are represented on the estates, and since 1990 the renowned oenologist Nicoló D' Afflito and his team of agronomists and oenologists have supported Frescobaldi. The historic Castello di Nipozzano estate with 240 hectares of vineyards is located in the Chianti-Rufina zone. The region east of Florence is known for its water scarcity and has always been renowned for its viticulture. In the Castello di Nipozzano, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc were cultivated for the first time in the mid-19th century by a member of the Frescobaldi family.
The Nipozzano Riserva
The label of the Nipozzano Riserva has a long history that dates back to the middle of the 19th century. The coat of arms of the Albizi family in Florentine refers to the marriage between Leonia degli Albizi and Angiolo Frescobaldi. In the middle of the coat of arms, two concentric circles symbolize a card used for combing wool. In the guild of cloth and fur merchants, the Albizi family had become rich. Above the coat of arms stands the noble crown, including the cross of the Order of Santo Stefano, an ancient papal knightly order. In the middle is the saying "Post Deum", God comes first.
