Castello di Nipozzano

en.frescobaldi.com   Castello di Nipozzano Logo

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.
