Marchesi Frescobaldi takes over the Poggio Verrano vineyard from the Bolla family. Founded in 2000, the estate is located in Tuscany's Maremma and covers about 30 hectares. It is considered to be Francesco Bolla's heart's project and was most recently co-managed by his daughter Valentina. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Sangiovese are the main grapes grown here; the top wine from Poggio Verrano is the "Dromos" cuvée. Frescobaldi already owns the Tenuta Ammiraglia in Magliano in Tuscany.
"We have great respect for what Francesco Bolla and his family have achieved in Maremma. I was able to personally follow the construction of the Poggio Verrano winery because I always drove past it on my way to Ammiraglia. The beauty of the vineyards, the winery perfectly integrated into the landscape, everything there conveys Francesco Bolla's deep appreciation for this area. I am grateful to him for allowing us to continue what he started with so much love," Lamberto Frescobaldi said about the purchase of the estate.
Marchesi Frescobaldi comprises the following wineries: Castello Pomino (Pomino), Castello Nipozzano (Nipozzano), Tenuta Perano (Gaiole in Chianti), Tenuta Castiglioni (Montespertoli), Tenuta CastelGiocondo (Montalcino), Tenuta Ammiraglia (Magliano in Toscana), Remole (Sieci), Tenuta Calimaia (Cervognano) and Gorgona. In addition, there are the wineries Ornellaia and Masseto in Bolgheri and Tenuta Luce in Montalcino as well as Attems in Collio (Friuli).
