    A small, family-owned and operated farm that's been practicing organic agriculture since 1998, Frascole is located in Tuscany, in the village of Dicomano. Sitting at the foothills of the Tuscan Appennines, just outside of Chianti Classico at the crossroads between the Sieve and Mugello valleys, Frascole has vineyards at great elevations, with 15ha of vineyards planted at 500m on the hill of Frascole, alongside 9ha of olive groves.

    With vineyards that have been passed down through the family for generations, Frascole sits on ancient Etruscan and Roman sites. The vineyards here are high-density with low yields, and all harvesting is conducted by hand.

    If an item does not have the vintage in the title/item name, we do not guarantee a specific vintage unless we explicitly advertise that vintage for sale. Additionally, the pictures of products on our website are for visual/informational purposes and do not necessarily indicate the current vintage(s) or labels available. 

    While the product images depict the intended product, label designs and packaging may be altered by the producer/manufacturer at any time. We do not guarantee a specific label or bottle design when you order.

    The Alcohol By Volume / ABV percentage reported is meant to be a general guideline given fluctuations in production, sometimes ABV is reported as a range (ex. 12.5% - 13.5%), etc.

    Wines labeled as "highly rated" are wines that at some point, including prior vintages, received excellent reviews and scores/points from established critics (and we do our best to report the specific vintage reviewed in the product description notes). It is meant to indicate (as a general guide) that the wine producer received accolades for that product for convenient filtering when browsing and searching.
