Description:
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 2009 is a lovely ruby-red. The nose opens with dark wild berries and cherry, hints of candy floss and pleasant floral notes of lilac and chocolate. The spicy component emerges with nuances of clove and green peppercorn. The palate is characterized by a distinct tactile approach in which the stamp of the terroir is underlined by a lively minerality. The tannin texture is tight but not sharp which is also an expression of the uniqueness of the soils of Nipozzano. The finish returns to the intense fruity notes already identified on the nose.

Producer Information

The Castello di Nipozzano, built in the year 1000 as a defensive fortress, became the center of communal life for the village of Nipozzano. Today the castle houses the wine cellar, where the estate red wines are produced and cask-aged. Castello di Nipozzano also serves as Frescobaldi’s hospitality center and as a 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 estate's soil, rich in clay and limestone, plus the dry, well-ventilated weather together compose the ideal terroir for the production of wines that are elegant, well balanced, and full bodied with firm structures to age well for many years. Those qualities are amply demonstrated by Frescobaldi Nipozzano Chianti Rufina Riserva DOCG and by the Frescobaldi Montesodi and Frescobaldi Mormoreto crus.
