User Reviews for Frescobaldi Nipozzano Chianti Cl.Ris

Winemaker's Notes:

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. Technical Information Yield/Hectare: 45 hl Fermentation vats: Stainless steel vats, keeping the different varieties separated Fermentation temperature: <30°C Length of fermentation: 13 days Length of maceration on the skins: 25 days Malolactic fermentation: Immediately after the alcoholic fermentation Maturation method: Second and third passage barriques Length of maturation: 24 months in barriques
