More info

The history of the Frescobaldi family starts over a thousand years ago and is closely connected with the history of Tuscany. At the high point of medieval Florence, the Frescobaldi spread their influence as bankers. Later, with the flowering of the Renaissance, they became patrons of major works in Florence. For generations creativity and a quest for excellence have inspired the Frescobaldi family, who has always looked to develop and celebrate the diversity of Tuscany’s terroir. Being proud owners of some of the greatest vineyards and of 7 wineries in Tuscany, they have always sought to maintain the identity and autonomy of each estate.

The Sangiovese and other vines for the Nipozzano Riserva red wine grow in the vineyards at Frescobaldi’s Castello Nipozzano winery situated in the heart of the prestigious Chianti Rufina territory to the east of Florence, on the mountain slope overlooking the Arno river valley. The grapes were harvested by hand, sorted and destemmed followed by 20 days fermentation on the skins using natural yeasts. The wine was matured for 24 months in oak barriques followed by a further period in the bottles.

Nipozzano 2016 boasts the characteristics of this superb vintage with strength and finesse. Its intense ruby red colour 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

Longevity 5-10 years.
