Marchesi de Frescobaldi Chianti Rufina Nipozzano Riserva 2004
Chianti Rùfina DOCG Riserva Sangiovese 90%, complementary varieties (Malvasia nera, Colorino, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon), Nipozzano Riserva Chianti Rufina DOCG is one of the historic wines produced at the Castello di Nipozzano. This wine always retains its close relationship with the Castello di Nipozzano terroir. Serving suggestions Barbecued meat and beef stews, aged cheeses. Tasting Notes An enticing, rather pronounced ruby red, edged with garnet. Its suite of fragrances exhibits considerable complexity, opening to dark fruit such as plum and blackcurrant, then enriched by a pungent spiciness that betrays cinnamon and clove. The attack offers dense, impressive pulp, and fine-grained tannins that marry beautifully with its alcohol; the result is a solidly-built, but not heavy or extractive, wine with a seamless, long-lingering finish.

One of the first wine's I really loved and got me interested in Italian wines. Robust, strong finish, with just the right hint of fruity.
Wonderfully well balanced yet complex with a great deal of attitude. I had it with lamb steak and oven baked potato, carrot and beetroot and fresh herbs. Sauce made of this wine, cream, veal stock and the juices from the steak. Like fireworks in my pallet y'all.

($23) Fairly dark ruby. Subdued but pure nose hints at spicy plum, ink, coffee and sweet underbrush. A saline quality and a peppery nuance add to this wine's overall flavor interest. Boasts a rather seamless texture and suave tannins and finishes mod... Stephen Tanzer's IWC. A Proprietary Blend wine from Tuscany in Italy. 2004 Frescobaldi Nipozzano Riserva 750ml
