Made with Sangiovese and small amounts of Malvasia Nera, Colorino, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon, this opens with aromas of dark-skinned fruit, fragrant purple flower and dark culinary spice. Bright and juicy, the easygoing palate doles out succulent wild cherry, cinnamon and clove set against supple tannins. Drink through 2019.
The acid and pH in this wine due to the fact this Vineyard is one of the highest in elevation of all of the Chianti region makes this wine age worthy for cellaring, Take note that Nipozzano starts to come together when it's at least 6 - 7 years old and no problem to cellar 15 years!
