Castello di Nipozzano Montesodi Chianti Rufina DOCG 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

Strikingly intense and brilliant purple. The nose shows rich, concentrated fruit, with abundant blackcurrant and blueberry preceding clean-edged impressions of plum preserves, while black pepper and cinnamon nuances mark a very lengthy finale. It develops quite full-bodied on the palate, warm and generous, with a well-built, velvety suite of tannins. The progression through the finish is complex and lingering, complemented throughout by a judicious acidity that perfectly balances the alcohol.

Wine Advocate ReviewRated 92The estates single-vineyard 2004 Chianti Refina Vigneto Montesodi (100% Sangiovese) saw 18 months aging in new barriques. It presents expressive aromatics followed by layers of black fruits, violets, licorice, sweet spices and menthol that flow from the glass with notable concentration as well as weight on the palate. A note of freshness gives the wine a beautiful sense of lift on the finish. Several years of cellaring will help integrate the toasted oak notes that are present today. This sleek interpretation of Chianti is a terrific effort from Frescobaldi. Anticipated maturity: 2009-2019.Wine Tasting NotesStrikingly intense and brilliant purple.
