Hailing from the oldest vines on the Castello Nipozzano estate, this offers enticing aromas of fragrant violet, iris, perfumed berry, aromatic herb and baking spice. Made with Sangiovese and small percentages of Malvasia Nera, Colorino and Canaiolo, the silky, linear palate offers wild cherry, crushed raspberry, clove and a hint of licorice framed in smooth tannins and fresh acidity.
