Winemaker's Notes:

Ripe, refined cherry and red berry fruit underscored by distinct impressions of mushrooms, leather and anise lead into this wine's elegantly textured palate, set in a structure of finely tuned tannins and fresh acidity.

About Tenuta di Nozzole:

The Nozzole estate produces a Chianti Classico Riserva and a single-vineyard wine from the superb "La Forra" parcel. Cabernet Sauvignon, cultivated principally in another parcel of the estate planted in 1981 called "Il Pareto," yields a pure Cabernet wine first produced in the 1987 vintage. The principal white vineyards of the Nozzole estate, the "Le Bruniche" and "Casa Vecchia" vineyards, once planted in Trebbiano Toscano and Malvasia, were replanted to Chardonnay in the early 1980s. These vineyards now produce Nozzole Le Bruniche, a distinctive, pure varietal Chardonnay.
