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 castle of Nipozzano is the most famous property of the Frescobaldi family. Built around the year 1000 in the heart of the Chianti Rufina area on the hills that overlook the river Arno, it was originally a defensive stronghold. Thanks to the perfect balance of altitude, soil and a cool, ventilated microclimate, the grape varietes enjoy ideal conditions for perfect growth. The wines of the estate have been cherished since Renaissance times for their balance and longevity.
The grapes were hand harvested in early October. Fermentation took place in stainless steel tanks at less than 35˚C and lasted for 10 days. Maceration lasted for 30 days including the alcoholic fermentation with periodical stirring to obtain maximum colour and softer tannins. The wine went through malolactic fermentation. The wine was aged for 18 months in oak.
This wine has an intense aroma profile with hints of cherry, strawberry, plum and dried flowers. The palate is warm and savoury with soft evolved tannins resulting in a wine which is harmonious and balanced.
A wonderful match for Porcini mushroom pasta or liver parfait.
