2015 Castelgiocondo "Campo ai Sassi" Rosso di Montalcino

The Frescobaldis are one of Tuscany’s oldest wine families. They are based in Rufina, just east of Florence, and they have wineries in multiple zones across Italy. While their family history is definitely rooted in Florence, their estate in Montalcino, Castello di Nipozzano, defined Chianti Rufina in the US for decades. They are practiced royals, elegant and well spoken, even when it comes to sotto-voce, but when they talk about Montalcino there’s always a twinkle in their eyes. The estate is on the west-south-west side of Montalcino.
