750 ml

A new wine from the estate of Nipozzano with pretty blueberry and light vanilla character. Full-bodied, chewy and rich with a long, lightly austere finish. Wonderful depth of fruit. From the oldest vines on the property and aged 24 months in barrel. Needs a year or two more of bottle age to soften: Drink now.

Wine Profile

ratings

This is elegant, with perfumed aromas of rose, currant, cherry, licorice and spice. Racy and firm, showing fine harmony and a long, spice- and mineral-tinged aftertaste. A bit austere on the finish. Best from 2016 through 2024.

tasting notes

Aromas of dark-skinned berry, exotic spice and wildflower lead the nose on this concentrated but refined wine. The intense palate offers layers of ripe black cherry, juicy raspberry, licorice, clove and tobacco alongside firm, velvety tannins. It’s a compelling expression of Chianti Rùfina.
