Nipozzano Riserva is a lovely ruby-red. The nose opens with dark wild berries and cherry, hints of candy floss and pleasant floral notes of lilac and chocolate. The spicy component emerges with nuances of clove and green peppercorn. The palate is characterized by a distinct tactile approach in which the stamp of the terroir is underlined by a lively minerality. The tannin texture is tight but not sharp which is also an expression of the uniqueness of the soils of Nipozzano. The finish returns to the intense fruity notes already identified on the nose.
Pair with barbecued meat and beef stews, aged cheeses.
"Black cherry, spice, tobacco and earth flavors prevail in this
dense red. The tannins verge on being gritty in texture, yet
there's adequate acidity to keep this fresh. Best from 2016
"Bright aromas of cherries and flowers follow through to a full body with beautiful fruit and fine tannins. Vivid aftertaste of ripe fruits. A go-to Tuscan red for everyone. Drink or hold.
"The 2010 Chianti Rufina Nipozzano Riserva shows great balance and purity with bright fruit tones of plum, blackberry and sweet spice. It's an easy-drinking expression that would pair with pasta and wild boar sauce or roast beef. A bright point of acidity helps to keep the palate refreshed."

Sangiovese (SAHN-gee-oh-VAY-zee) Blood of Jove (literally translated) The principal grape of Chianti - in fact, the principle grape of all of Tuscany - has had its ups and downs. For a stint in the 70s and 80s, wines labeled Chianti contained cheap red wine packaged in a straw casked bottle, most popular for the candle holder it would become. But no more. Sangiovese re...Read More About Sangiovese
