Frescobaldi Chianti Rufina Riserva DOCG 75cl

Nipozzano Riserva Chianti Rufina DOCG is one of the historic wines produced at the Castello di Nipozzano. This wine always retains its close relationship with the Castello di Nipozzano terroir.
Nipozzano 2011 is a ruby red colour with purple highlights. The nose delivers fruity notes dominated by ripe black cherry, marasca cherry and a delicate hint of forest underbrush. Floral notes of violet and fresh notes of liquorice combine with spicy aromas of clove and nutmeg. The palate has a pleasing entry with broad tannins and lovely texture. Fresh and full bodied; reveals a remarkable correspondence between fragrances and flavour and a notable persistence.
