The Petrognano estate was rented by Selvapiana's Francesco Giuntini in 1993. His son, Federico Giuntini Masseti, now makes the wine with consultant Franco Bernabei.

This cool, northern Tuscan zone, with vineyards planted at an altitude of about 350m above sea level, gives the wine a lovely elegance, while the blend of varieties, the judicious use of oak and the skill of Franco Bernabei all combine to produce an excellent wine.

Pomino's use of French varieties in the blend dates back to the 1850s, when Vittorio degli Albizi returned from France to Tuscany to take over the family estate and brought with him cuttings from his favourite French varieties.
