Winemaker Notes

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.

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
JS 91
James Suckling
A chewy, rich red with blueberry and blackberry character, a full body and a firm tannin backbone. Always an excellent, well-structured Chianti. Drink or hold.
WS 90
Wine Spectator
The cherry and raspberry flavors are singed by black pepper in this elegant, vibrant red. Firms up, ending with fine length and a spicy aftertaste.
WE 90
Wine Enthusiast
Aromas of dark berry, menthol, leather and savory herb take shape in the glass. The refined palate offers ripe morello cherry, cinnamon, white pepper, eucalyptus, sage and a hint of orange zest. It's smooth and well balanced with supple tannins.

Frescobaldi Winery Video

Frescobaldi’s story is strictly connected with the history of Tuscany. At the high point of medieval Florence, the Frescobaldis spread their influence as bankers, becoming patrons of major works in Florence, such as Santa Trinita bridge and the Basilica of Santo Spirito.

Frescobaldi embodies the essence of Tuscany, its extraordinary vocation for viticulture and the diversity of its territories.

Frescobaldi’s uniqueness stems precisely from the representation of Toscana diversity, from its estates and from wines which express a kaleidoscope of aromas and sensations, springing from the characteristics of each individual terroir. The Estates are positioned in prime areas of Tuscany and each tells its own story, made up of nature, terroir and people.

From Tenuta Castiglioni, where the family’s 700 years of wine-growing history began, to CastelGiocondo on the Montalcino hills, to the timeless Castello Nipozzano. From the hidden gem of Castello Pomino, up to Tenuta Ammiraglia’s new horizons overlooking the sea, to Tenuta Perano a natural amphitheater in the heart of Chianti Classico, ending with Remole, that expresses all the character of Tuscany.

Behind every Frescobaldi wine lies the passion of agronomists and oenologists, who know their vineyards and terroirs down to the finest detail. Their art, creating quality wines, requires the iron rule of respect. Respect for tradition, which guide them, even in the midst of innovation or avant-garde solutions. Respect fort Tuscany, the living land, to be cultivated in harmony and serenity. Respect for each individual terroir, borne of a unique combination of soil, altitude and microclimate, each giving us a wine with its own matchless personality.
