Benefizio Riserva Pomino Bianco Frescobaldi, crowns the story of an international white grape variety grown in this unique corner of Tuscany, the Castello di Pomino, where hills and cypress trees suddenly give way to steep slopes, cooler temperatures in summer and snow in winter, and magnificent forests of firs and centuries-old oaks surrounding the vineyards. Planted here as early as 1855 at an altitude of 700 m above sea level, with a southern exposure and predominantly sandy soil, the Cru Benefizio was born in 1973, marking a national novelty in terms of vinification method, being one of the first white wines in Italy to be fermented and aged in barriques.

The grapes were harvested in boxes by hand with extreme care and attention. Once arrived in the cellar, the pressing they underwent was extremely soft and delicate, already allowing a good extraction of clear must, further clarified after cold decantation. The musts thus obtained were placed in barriques, 50% new and 50% first-passage, where they underwent alcoholic fermentation and only partially malolactic fermentation.

The wine then matured in wood, on the lees, with bâtonnage carried out as required. After further bottle ageing, it reached its maximum taste-olfactory expression in terms of elegance and harmony.

Tasting Notes In the glass it presents a wonderful straw yellow colour with golden hues. The bouquet is varied, presenting hints of white fruit such as pear, exotic fruit notes such as mango, banana and pineapple and more citrus notes of candied citron. The citrus sensation is also picked up by hints of orange blossom. On the palate it is savoury and mineral, with an elegant and harmonious finish. The aromatic intensity perceived on the palate is amplified by the alcohol content and the aftertaste of dried fruit. Persistent and long finish.
