The Frascole Estate overlooks the town of Dicomano, and its gently sloping hills and small valleys. The small village the estate is based on has its origins in medieval times, which in turn were built upon previous Etruscan and Roman buildings amid vineyards and olive groves. In 1996, while the Frascole family was planting new vines, they uncovered the remains of a home from Roman times. A few years earlier during another restructuring project, they uncovered Roman coins just a short distance away. The houses on the estate underwent renovations, which was completely finished by the end of the decade. The family lives in two of these homes, while the rest are offered as holiday accommodation to anyone wishing to stay in the Tuscan countryside among locals, enjoying the peace and relaxation of the country while being about 30 minutes from Florence. The 2008 Frascole Chianti Rufina is a deep black cherry ruby color, with black reflections and cherry impenetrable. The bouquet is quite fresh, with jammy red berry fruit that has a red berry fruit acidity. On the palate it’s ample and smooth, with rich cherry fruit supported by moderate acidity and by tannins that flow into a clean finish. Very pleasant, this will drink well with grilled meats or light stews. Recipe pairing: Beef and Cheese Manicotti
