Climate trend

During the winter of 2018, at the Castiglioni estate, there was considerable rainfall, with snowy events in early March, which guaranteed abundant water reserves for the summer period. The spring season has seen an alternation of hot sunny days and cool and humid days. The plant reacted with a consistent and luxuriant development of the buds and a beautiful flowering. With the arrival of summer the rains have decreased; the months of July and August gave us warm and sunny days. In September, the almost total absence of rains and the presence of an important wind from the north, allowed the grapes to ripen in a particularly dry environment, leading to an important ripening and concentration.

Frescobaldi

Creativity and the pursuit of excellence have been handed down over the centuries in all generations of the family. In 1300, during the exile of Dante Alighieri, the poet friend Dino Frescobaldi brought him back the first seven songs of the Divine Comedy, thus allowing him to complete the work. In the 1700s, the Baroque compositions of the famous musician Girolamo Frescobaldi spread throughout Europe. With great openness to the future, the family's ancestors introduced vines to Tuscany that were unknown at the time in 1855, including Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Pinot Nero and Chardonnay. The 20th century is characterized by the action of Vittorio, Ferdinando and Leonardo Frescobaldi who made an important contribution to elevating Tuscany to a place of excellence for viticulture. Today Lamberto Frescobaldi has collected the witness who, thanks to his long technical experience, has the aim of further strengthening the uniqueness of the wines of each estate of the family.
