This is ultimately what lies at the basis of the “Art and Frescobaldi” project, as it seeks to guide the public to see a place – known well to some, but less so to others – in a way that only artists can.

We asked Ludovico Pratesi, the artistic curator for the project, to ...

THE CASTELGIOCONDO ESTATE

diario_la_tenuta

In the Middle Ages, the castle defended the road between the Talamone harbour and Siena, looking out across an elegant, wild land in the heart of the Montalcino region, a place of colours and beauty. The famed wine from here is intense and structured, while also elegant and balanced. The Castelgiocondo Estate brings together all these elements and more. The winery has been crafting Brunello di Montalcino since the late 19th century and, on the shoulders of its historical, economic ...
