Frescobaldi Castello Nipozzano Chianti Rufina Riserva 2018

The benchmark of Chianti Riserva, Nipozzano has a
vibrant personality full of wild berry, cherry and toasted
notes underpinned with spicy aromas, classic and fine.
Producer Note
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. Gambero Rosso awarded Frescobaldi with the
prestigious ‘Tre Bicchieri Winery of the Year Award 2020’, in recognition of its
uncompromising commitment to quality and innovation.
Vineyard
The vineyards of Nipozzano are situated 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 combination of altitude, soil
type and a cool ventilated microclimate provides excellent conditions for perfect
growth and produces wines of harmonious character and great longevity.
Winemaking
The fruit was harvested at the beginning of September and the berries were carefully
sorted. The grapes were destemmed and fermentation took place with natural yeasts
in temperature controlled stainless steel vats. Post fermentation maceration lasted for 22
days at 26°C to extract aromas, colour and structure; followed by malolactic
conversion. At the end of the year, the wine was transferred into barriques of second
and third passage, where it was aged for a further 24 months, followed by further bottle
ageing.
