The Marchesi de’ Frescobaldi Family of Tuscany, Italy

It’s said the third time is the charm. If so, then Danzante is a very special wine. The third collaboration forged by the joint venture between the Robert Mondavi family of Napa Valley, Calif. and the Marchesi de’ Frescobaldi family of Tuscany, Italy, Danzante is a product that could only have come from the Frescobaldi name. For a full 700 years, generations of this legendary Italian winemaking family have perfected their claim to creating the most exquisite wines grown anywhere in the world. The same thorough attention to detail, creativity, and perfection that has been the hallmark of the Frescobaldi lineage for centuries continues today. It flowers under the stewardship of Franceso Frescobaldi, who mixes his own unrivaled technical skill with his forebears’ pursuit of excellence in crafting the renowned wine called Danzante.

Danzante Refers to the Tantalizing Dance of Life Itself

Had Danzante been borne solely of the Frescobaldi family, it would surely have been a superlative wine. But its uniqueness stems from another quality entirely. That is a one-of-a-kind synergy flowing from the joining of two world-famous wine-producing families. The pair combined forces more than two decades ago after the Robert Mondavi family signaled its intention to “come home again” to its Italian roots. Unveiled in 1999 with the 1997 vintage of Danzante Sangiovese and the 1998 vintage of Danzante Pinot Grigio, Danzante in no time fully lived up to its name. That imprimatur, richly representative of the Italian philosophy of “La Dolce Vita,” is a celebration of all things Italian, from tempting cuisine to unforgettable times, beautiful people and sensory pleasures. Italian for the English word “dancing,” the name Danzante quite literally refers to the mesmerizing, tantalizing dance of life itself.

Danzante wine cocktails are a superb way to enjoy summer. The hottest days of the season are perfect for a Tuscan Blackberry Refresher, made from Danzante Tuscan Red, gin and lime juice over ice and topped with blackberries. Delicious! When the temperatures soar, who doesn't love the fruity freeze of a Chianti Sangria, concocted from three cups of Danzante Chianti, one cup brandy, one cup triple sec, one sliced orange and two cups chilled club soda. Just as refreshing is a Danzante Mimosa, prepared from two ounces of Danzante Pinot Grigio, one ounce orange juice and one-half ounce lemon flavor syrup, for a taste of light yet sweet perfection.
