Castelgiocondo Brunello di Montalcino

171067The history of wine in the family begins with Frescobaldi Berto who purchased for their children, rural properties, including houses, mills, vineyards, orchards and farms. In the 15th and 16th centuries, the Florentine family was a wine supplier to the English Royal Court and many other royal family establishments across Europe, including the Papal Court. But in the 19th century, Marchese Vittorio degli Albizzi, inheriting the properties in Tuscany, came from Borganha to take over the business. With his experience, he was among the first in Italy to offer the growing of vines and varietal specialty crops, even at altitudes hitherto not used for viticulture.
