Description

From vineyards located 700m above sea level within the Pomino DOC, the Benefizio Riserva 2021 is a barrel-aged Chardonnay from Tuscan powerhouse Frescobaldi. A wonderful straw-yellow colour with golden highlights in the glass, the nose is a complex bouquet of pear, mango, banana and pineapple with hints of orange blossom. The palate is sapid and mineral with an elegant aromatic intensity and an aftertaste of dried fruit.

Located on the Florentine mountains within the Pomino DOC, Castello Pomino is a hidden gem surrounded by sequoias, firs and chestnut trees, with vines planted at an altitude of 700 metres. The vineyards are planted to Chardonnay, Pinot Blanc and Pinot Nero and from these they produce two whites, a red using the Pinot Nero grapes, a Vinsanto, and two traditional method sparkling wines. The Pomino estate dates to 1500, the same year that the castle was built, and was named alongside Chianti, Carmignano and Val d’Arno di Sopra by Grand Duke Cosimo III de’ Medici in 1716 as being one of the most highly prized territories for wine production in Tuscany.

Food matches: Lovely with fish and poultry dishes, as well as hard cheese.
