NIPOZZANO RISERVA 2015

Denomination Chianti Rufina Riserva DOCG

Description A historic Frescobaldi wine produced at Castello di Nipozzano,
situated around 35 km north-east of Florence. It is the symbol of
Tuscan winemaking and maintains a close relationship with the
style of the terroir.
Vintage Report In 2015 the grape ripening was excellent, aided by the long
summer, high temperatures and favourable climate. The longawaited
warm welcome of winter did not come until the second
half of February, slowing the reawakening of the vines which,
due to the freezing temperatures, delayed the guttation phase by
around ten days. Spring arrived punctually on 21 March. The
flowering season was favoured by the alternation of clear days
with mild temperatures and below average rainfall as compared
to the last five years. The fruiting season began during the
summer, which will be remembered as one of the hottest and
sunniest of the last decade. July was characterised by days with
temperatures above 30 degrees and very little rainfall. The
beneficial rains of the first week in August changed the rhythm
of the season once again. Autumn brought with it an unexpected
change of air, colours and aromas, as well as the beginning of the
harvest in September.

Tasting Notes Nipozzano 2015 has an intense ruby-red colour. The nose
provides a pleasant combination of the clear notes of red berries
and lightly toasted coffee, lending complexity to the wine before
giving way to a fresh and spicy finish. In the mouth the wine is
rich, characterised by the elegant density of the grapes and the
mineral freshness of the finish that make it balanced and
persistent.
Serving suggestions Grilled red meat, roast lamb, semi-matured pecorino cheese.
