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. The Castelgiocondo “Campo ai Sassi” Rosso di Montalcino (campo ai sassi means field of stones) comes from a series of vineyards planted in 1990 to 2000. They suggest that you pair the Rosso di Montalcino with an egg-pasta dish such as pappardelle with a rabbit sauce, or in Montalcino the ubiquitous wild boar.
