Castello Pomino | Tuscany

The wines of Castello Pomino in Tuscany, Italy

Castello Pomino is the hidden gem of Toscana. Pomino DOC is the highest appellation in Tuscany, with intense sunshine and wide temperature ranges and only one other producer makes wine from this tiny appellation. The wine-making story began in Pomino in the 16th century, but it was in the mid 1800s that Leonia degli Albizzi, wife of Angiolo Frescobaldi brought about significant innovation. Born in Burgundy, she boldly cultivated Chardonnay and Pinot Nero at this high altitude and built the first gravity-fed winery. The vines thrived and the elegant Pomino wines were produced to wide acclaim, first receiving the gold medal at the Paris Expo of 1878. These stylish wines still have a wonderful luminosity, minerality and finesse to this day. Gambero Rosso awarded Frescobaldi with the prestigious ‘Tre Bicchieri Winery of the Year Award 2020’, in recognition of its uncompromising commitment to quality and innovation. Pomino boasts an environment unique inTuscany: a perfectly-balanced ecosystem of vineyards, fir forest, chestnut trees, and olive groves. The estate covers 1,458 hectares lying along the wooded slopes of the Tuscan-Emilian Apennines, with 108 hectares in vineyards, at elevations ranging from 300 to 750 metres.
