Tasting notes - The 2014 is an opulent, complex and intense wine with a floral bouquet complemented by wild berry aromas of raspberry, blackberry and blueberry. Layered with spice, toasty notes and hints of tea, nutmeg and coffee, this has a warming, enveloping palate with fine, smooth tannins. Elegant and harmoniously balanced with a long, persistent finish.
The benchmark of Chianti Riserva, Nipozzano has a
vibrant personality full of wild berry, cherry and toasted
notes underpinned with spicy aromas.
Tradition, innate elegance and the essence of the Renaissance: Tuscany exudes an
aura of timelessness that has inspired generations of the Frescobaldi family and is
now an integral part of their vineyards. The Nipozzano Estate is located in one of the
traditional areas of Chianti: Chianti Rufina, which is the smallest and most elevated
Chianti sub-appellation. The 11th century castle is located in the heart of the
prestigious Chianti Rufina, which holds the family cellar including wines dating back
to 1864. The uniqueness of the Nipozzano terroir continues to produce wines with a
wide range of aromas and extraordinary longevity.
The winter was warm, followed by a mid spring which encouraged an early
budding. 2014 saw a mild summer with intermittent rains, which brought the growing
season back to its normal progression. Heatwaves at the end of July and the
beginning of August resulted in a positive véraison. The diurnal temperature
differences promoted a gradual ripening of the fruit and warm weather conditions in
September resulted in healthy grapes of excellent quality.
The vineyards of Nipozzano are found approximately 20 miles to the east of Florence.
Located in the heart of the prestigious Chianti Rufina territory, the vines are grown on
a hillside that overlooks the valley and the river Arno. The balance of altitude, soil
type and a cool ventilated microclimate provides excellent conditions for perfect
growth and produces wines of harmonious character and great longevity.
A blend of 90% Sangiovese with 10% complementary grapes: Malvasia Nera,
Colorino, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon. Each variety was fermented separately at
controlled temperatures of 30°C, which lasted for 13 days. The grapes were
macerated on the skins for 25 days, with frequent pumping over, to extract colour,
flavour and fine tannins. The wine went through malolactic fermentation immediately
after fermentation was complete. A proportion of the wine was matured in second
and third passage barriques for 24 months. Three months bottle ageing.
