Frescobaldi 1998 Nipozanno Riserva (Chianti Rufina)

Best Buy

A pile of earth, smoke, leather and dark chocolate is about all you can pull from the dense, closed nose. The palate is only a bit more open, and on the back palate the full allotment of berries and oak comes on hard. It's grapey and tannic, but it should be more friendly in due time, say two more years. Best Buy. —M.S. Michael Schachner
