Nipozzano Riserva Chianti Rùfina DOCG is one of the historic wines produced at the Castello di Nipozzano Estate of Frescobaldi winery. This wine always retains its close relationship with the Castello di Nipozzano terroir. This wine is made from 90% Sangiovese and 10% complementary grapes (Malvasia nera, Colorino, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon) that macerates on the skins for 25 days, with frequent reassembly. After alcoholic and malolactic fermentation, the wine matures in second and third passage barriques for 24 months and other 3 months in bottle.
Nipozzano Riserva Chianti Rùfina DOCG has a ruby-red colour with good consistency. The nose opens with a strong fruit component of blackberry, blueberry and cherry. Sweet notes of cotton candy and spicy notes of cloves and nutmeg follow. The tannins are dense, but not harsh. The palate is warm and smooth, lovely.
