IRW061204

Ripe al Convento is a wine made with scrupulous care and attention from individual berry selection in the vineyard to vinification and ageing in the cellar. It is a Brunello Riserva with powerful personality and exceptional ageing ability. The wine spend a minimum of 2 years in a mix of Large Slavonian oak ovals and French oak barrels, and release 6 years only after harvest.

On the highest hills of this estate, which began producing wine in the year 1800, asmallSangiovese vineyard amazes us with extraordinary emotions. At an altitude of 450 metres, the vineyard benefits from warm sun in the afternoon, galestro type soil, and fresh Mediterranean breezes, producing a uniquely elegant Brunello Riserva, with personality and longevity.

Intense and brilliant ruby red in colour, the wine is complex and intense on the nose: aromatic expression is of alternating notes of red and black fruits, damson and blackcurrant, before giving way to mineral notes of spice and incense. On the palate Ripe al Convento is opulent, enveloping, harmonious and rich with elegant tannins balanced by excellent flavour and acidity. The finish is persistent, lingering and aromatic.

About The Brand

The history of the Frescobaldi family starts over a thousand years ago and is closely connected with the history of Tuscany, with the wine involvement dating back to at least 1308. At the high point of medieval Florence, the Frescobaldi’s spread their influence as bankers, earning the title of treasures to the English crown.  Today, they intend for the different family estates, with their vineyards, to be the expression of this diversity and for the wines to reflect each individual terroir, respecting their nature and authenticity. They own 11 estates in Tuscany, all running independently. That includes Ornellaia & Masseto, 2 of the most revered Super-Tuscan wines.
