Pomino the highest wine region of Tuscany

Pomino is a restricted wine region of the municipality of Rufina, historically suited to viticulture, already protected by the famous rulebook of 1716 of Cosimo II dé Medici and still among the most interesting in Tuscany.

The Pomino is being produced from grapes grown on some of the highest hills of Tuscany, between 400 and 700 meters above sea level, located east of Florence, in an enchanting scenery shared with the DOCG Chianti Rufina.


The two most important white grape varieties are Pinot Bianco and Chardonnay, an anomalous situation in this region, where the Trebbiano Toscano is the base of many white wines. This white has pleasant characteristics of youth, evident in straw yellow with greenish reflections and in the aromas of apple, pineapple, and white peach. In the mouth, it is fresh and pleasant, with good structure, even if these vines give superior results in areas more favorable to them. This wine is easily combined with shellfish and shellfish starters, seafood spaghetti and white meats also with sauces.


Red, based on the usual Sangiovese, to which a small percentage of international vines are often added, is a structured wine, has a beautiful ruby red color, aromas of forest fruits, spicy and slightly herbaceous. Warm and soft, with well-defined tannins and enriched by aging in small French oak barrels, it goes well with first courses with game ragout, stuffed pigeons, orange duck, Tuscan pork livers and medium-aged pecorino cheeses.


This is a dessert wine, white or red, goes well with the fritters of Tondone and the "Castagnaccio alla Fiorentina".
