Description

Castello di Nipozzano Chianti Rufina Riserva DOCG 2016

Castello di Nipozzano is a historic wine estate owned by the Frescobaldi family in the heart of the Chianti Rufina area. It is characterized by its 11th century castle, which houses the estate’s wine cellar and barrel room. The emblematic wine of Castello di Nipozzano, Nipozzano Riserva is a symbol of Tuscan wine-making traditions and holds a strong affinity to the style of its terroir.

Intense ruby red colour. Wild berries and dark cherry on the nose are complemented with delicate notes of violet. The warm palate expresses dark cherry complexly harmonised with layers of spice, toasty notes and hints of tea. This is completed with notes of oak, vanilla and chocolate. Dense and persistent, this wine is bold and elegant with velvety tannins.

Sourced exclusively from the estate vineyards, the grapes for this wine were harvested in the first few days of September 2016. Once de-stemmed and soft pressed, natural alcoholic fermentation took place in thermo-regulated stainless-steel vats. The wine remained in the vats to complete maceration on skins for 25 days. It was then transferred to stainless-steel tanks for malolactic fermentation. At the end of the year, the wine was transferred into French barriques to age for 24 months. Matured in the bottle for 4 months before release.
