Nipozzano has always been a wine that rewarded patience. Peppery, black olive, tobacco, earthy, slightly meaty nose...

This is a thoughtful, layered and complex Chianti from an excellent vintage. It is not a showboat, for now, but I...

Particularly successful in 2010, driven by a rather dense tannic stuff, but mostly bursting with fruit, nervous,...

The 2010 Marchesi De’ Frescobaldi Chianti Nipozzano Riserva, aged in oak barriques for 27 months, has fruity aromas of cherry, raspberry and dusty wood on the nose and cherry on the palate. It is a light to medium bodied, extra-dry, fruity to integrated wine; with refreshing acidity, refined tannins (decant for 30 min) and a medium finish. This is a food friendly wine; drink now to 2018 (long cork enclosure). My impression: NICE, 87 pts. Tasted Apr/15.

It is a medium bodied, extra-dry, fruity to integrated wine; with good acidity, dusty tannins and medium finish. It is food friendly; drink now – 2016+. My impression: NICE, 88 pts.
