Lamberto Frescobaldi, President Frescobaldi



2015 Frescobaldi Alie

Pale salmon to pink rose color. Light fresh strawberry and dried herbs on the nose. The flavor starts with bright fresh strawberry followed by cherry and a bit of lime zest. Limestone minerality backs up a long finish


SRP: $20




nipozzano-vecchie-viti-2013-nuovo-logo2012 Frescobaldi, Nipozzano Vecchie Viti

This ruby red wine starts with aromas of a floral bouquet and ripe berries. The texture is well balanced with flavors of berry preserves, coffee, and orange blossom. Silky tannin and forward acid leads to a complex finish.


SRP: $29






2013 Frescobaldi, Gorgona

This is one of the most intriguing wines I’ve tasted in 2016. Golden rich color showing aromas of pear and golden delicious apple. The luxurious, full bodied texture leads to flavors of pear, kiwi, citrus and limestone finishing long and elegant. This is a wine worthy of the price tag and a spot in your cellar.


SRP: $125
