History & Geography
Timeless beauty, innate elegance, and the quintessence of the Renaissance. Tuscany exudes an aura of time out of time that has inspired generations of the Frescobaldi family, a feeling that today permeates the family vineyards. These concepts are personified in Castello Nipozzano, which lies in the Chianti Rufina zone, some 25 kilometres east of Florence. With its 300 hectares of vineyards covering the mountainous slopes facing the Arno river, Castello Nipozzano is one of the most iconic of the Frescobaldi estates, and it is the guardian of the family’s historic wine collection. The name Nipozzano means “without water-well,” underscoring the area’s relative lack of water reserves, a condition that actually favours high-quality viticulture. The first documentary evidence of the high quality of the wine from Castello Nipozzano is found in the Renaissance, when great artists such as Donatello and Michelozzo Michelozzi were among those who regularly purchased its wine.
