Marchesi de Frescobaldi Nippozzano 2012 Chianti Rufina Riserva
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.

James Suckling - 92 Points
Lots of mineral, dried berry and cherry aromas and flavors. Full body, bright acidity and a silky finish. Plenty going on. Love the dark fruit and mineral character on the finish. Drink or hold.
