A STORY TO SHARE

The ancient defensive stronghold of Florence from the year 1000, the castle of Nipozzano is the most celebrated and historic property of the Frescobaldi family. According to popular belief Nipozzano means “without a well” - testimony to the area's lack of water and ideal circumstances for the cultivation of grapevines. The first documentation about the renowned wines of Nipozzano dates from the Renaissance when great artists such as Donatello and Michelozzo Michelozzi regularly purchased wine from the estate. A unique feature of the territory is attributed to the foresight of an ancestor of the Frescobaldi family who, in 1855 invested 1,000 florins to begin the cultivation of varieties previously unknown in Tuscany such as Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. After more than a century of patient care, these magnificent vines produce the great wine of the estate, Mormoreto.

THE TERROIR OF NIPOZZANO

The castle of Nipozzano and the winery are found east of Florence in the heart of the prestigious territory of Chianti Rufina on the mountainous side that overlooks the valley of the river Arno. Thanks to the perfect Balance of altitude, soil and a cool, ventilated microclimate, the varietes enjoy ideal conditions for perfect growth, and produce wines of harmonious character and great longevity. The vineyard of Mormoreto is the best example of the exclusive marriage of nature and the work of man, an extraordinary terroir where the breezes that sweep across the vines create a 'murmur' among the leaves, a characteristic that inspired the name of the vineyard and of the wine.
