Wine Review: The Frescobaldi Pomino Bianco is sourced from one of the smallest DOCs in Tuscany. The Pomino DOC is owned by two proprietors one of which is Frescobaldi. This is a rounder-style white that has notes of wildflowers, melons, and grapefruit zest on the nose. The palate is round with flavors of honeydew melon, lemongrass and white grapefruit. There is a honeyed characteristic that should develop with time. The finish is made up of mild acid and lemongrass that is on the shorter side. Would pair well a seared tuna. – Nicolay

Winemaker Notes: With its bright straw-yellow color and incredibly delicate golden highlights, Pomino Bianco 2018 is extremely elegant and delicate to behold. The bouquet is just as delicate, with gentle floral aromas that are balanced out wonderfully with fruity notes. White flowers, green apple, pear, grapefruit and the very many facets of citrus fruits combine, giving way to an extremely well-balanced nose. On the palate, it is pleasantly fresh yet soft. A long and persistent finish.
