TASTING NOTE:

Fresh and linear with aromas and flavors of black cherries and hints of hazelnuts and walnuts. Medium body, light tannins giving a lightly dusty texture and a crisp and bright, fresh finish.

-James Suckling, 92 pts

 

This is one of the most value-conscious and versatile red wines to come from Tuscany, and these are two attributes that are consistently awarded to this wine year after year. The Frescobaldi 2016 Chianti Rúfina Riserva Nipozzano offers a repeat performance and indeed adds a little more bang for your buck, thanks to the general excellence of this vintage. Sangiovese-based wines from 2016 are linked by a sense of linearity and focus. Red cherry and cassis play a leading role with grilled herb, potting soil and light shadings of iron ore. This is a mid-weight expression with plenty of extra texture, softness and freshness on the close.

-Robert Parker's Wine Advocate, 92 pts

WINEMAKER'S NOTE:

Its intense ruby red color gives it a bold and elegant character. Red berries and notes of ripe citrus fruit give way to a delicately fruity nose, followed by elegant notes of violet. This is all completed with a slight spiciness. The palate expresses itself with an intriguing, harmonious complexity. Nipozzano 2016 is dense and persistent.

Pairs with grilled red meat, roast lamb, and semi-matured pecorino cheese.
