Frescobaldi Pomino Nero 2016
Under the law of Hong Kong, intoxicating liquor must not be sold or supplied to a minor in the course of business.
Pomino Pinot Noir 2011 is ruby-red, brilliant and translucent. The nose is complex and elegant, bringing out intense berry fruits characterized by black currant and raspberry, which fits very well with the fresh hint of mint. The finish is an unexpected burst of leather and toasty notes of chocolate and coffee. The tannins, silky and vibrant on the palate, give considerable noseto-palate correspondence. A flavourful and persistent finish.

From an early economic base in the Italian community of cloth merchants in Bruges, the Frescobaldi expanded their banking interests to their home city of Florence in the 13th century. Their power base in the city's affairs lay in their participation in the small network that controlled the great cloth-working Arti: the Arte della Lana, the Arte di Calimala, the guild of cloth finishers and merchants in foreign cloth, and the Cambio, or money exchange.
In Florence the Frescobaldi found themselves on the wrong side in the attempted power coup of the Grandi in 1343 and were henceforth barred from public service in the Republic, but the Frescobaldi remained prominent in the lesser offices still open to them, such as podestà in the small towns governed from Florence, and through the web of marriage connections among the Florentine ruling class.
