Elegance, finesse and body are the defining elements of the Benefizio 2018. The color is atypical pale yellow with golden reflections. Its bouquet is both delicate and persistent. The refined aromatic variety is highly impressive with its development over time. Notes of orange blossom, magnolia and gorse soon give way to citrus aromas of candied and dried fruit. Gentle spice alongside the tertiary notes produced during refinement conclude this astounding olfactory journey. Its structure is confirmed by an alcoholic note, perfectly balanced and harmonized by freshness. The finish is long and persistent.
A serious chardonnay with nougat, cooked apples, honey and hints of vanilla. It’s full-bodied, yet not too heavy or overdone. Creamy finish, both in texture and flavor. Some flintiness. 90% new wood, but you don’t see it. Drink or hold.
Celebrating its 140th anniversary, the Frescobaldi 2018 Pomino Bianco Riserva Benefizio Castello di Pomino is a historic wine for many reasons that reach beyond the accomplishment of this impressive birthday. For one, this Chardonnay put the high-altitude Pomino appellation on the map, representing one of Tuscany's first white wine territories. This Riserva offers Burgundian undertones of white peach, creamy almond and cantaloupe melon. The wine is fresh and balanced by its acidity and those dusty chalky tones that make for such an elegant finish.
