Frescobaldi, Pomino Bianco DOC, Tuscany, Italy

£14.59

A delicious and uncommon Chardonnay wine from Tuscany. A touch of Pinot Blanc also to round out the blend. Hailing from the tiny sub-appellation of Pomino in Tuscany this wine is a delicate and elegant wine floral, pear, and lemon aromas. Perfectly balanced and ripe, it is a very engaging and enjoyable wine, and for anyone who thinks Chardonnay is oaky, buttery, flabby, uninspiring plonk... this will certainly make you think again. We highly recommend it. It's a delight to taste.

A delicate and elegant wine with gentle floral aromas combined with fruity notes of sweet Williams pear, apple, grapefruit and fragrant lemon. Perfectly balanced on the palate, with a lovely freshness underpinning the green fruit flavours through to an aromatic and persistent finish.

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.
