History & Geography
Luminosity, minerality and a touch of elegance and feminity: Pomino is hidden gem that is revelead to whomever crosses through the first woods on the Florentine mountains, with vines that clamber up to an altitude of 700 metres, surrounded by sequoias, spruce and chestnut trees. The wine-making story begins in Pomino in the 16th century. Major innovations were introduced in the mid-1800s by Leonia degli Albizzi, wife of Angiolo Frescobaldi. Born in Burgundy, she had the audacity to build the first gravity winery and cultivate Chardonnay and Pinot Nero at altitude, earning important recognition for the Pomino wines, such as the gold medal at the Paris Expo of 1878. Today, Leonia is the name of the new Frescobaldi Classic Method: a tribute to her audacity, elegance and sensuality.
