Wine Profile

Tasting 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.
Ratings 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."
Food Pairing Notes Barbecued meat and beef stews, aged cheeses.
