Nipozzano Chianti Rufina Riserva (half bottles) shows intense fruit notes of wild blackberry,  blueberry, raspberry and dark cherry emerge initially on  the nose, gradually yielding to more pungent impressions of sage, rosemary, vanilla, and cinnamon.

More info

The Castello di Nipozzano, built in year 1000 as a defensive fortress, became the centre of communal life for the village of the same name. Today the castle houses the wine cellar, where the estate red wines are produced and cask-aged. Nipozzano also serves as Frescobaldi’s hospitality centre and as site for its fine food and wine initiatives.

The estate lies in the heart of the Chianti Rufina area, covering 626 hectares at elevations between 250 and 400 metres. 240 hectares are planted with Sangiovese, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot, and Petit Verdot. The soil, rich in clay and limestone, and its dry, well-ventilated weather compose the ideal terroir for the production of wines that are elegant and well balanced, full bodied, with firm structures to last them over many years. Those qualities are amply demonstrated by Nipozzano Chianti Rufina Riserva DOCG and by the Montesodi and Mormoreto crus.
