Wine description

A wine that represents the Tuscan tradition and the winemaking skills of the Tuscan peasant culture. Composed of the prevalence of Sangiovese, to which complementary varietals are added such as black Malvasia, Colorino, Canaiolo. This wine, chosen by the Frescobaldi family to continue the tradition of reserving a "Private Collection" for its new born, comes from the oldest vines of the Castello di Nipozzano, with a deep root system. Of great complexity and harmony, it ages for 24 months in oak barrels. The origin of the grapes is that of the Castello di Nipozzano estate. The maceration time is 20 days, with frequent pumping over of the must. The malolactic fermentation takes place immediately after the alcoholic one. It is then aged in oak barrels. The aging time is 24 months in oak barrels, then 3 months in the bottle are added before being released.

A wine that presents itself to the organoleptic examination with an intense ruby red color. the bouquet on the nose is characterized by the balance between the floral notes of apricot and the spicy notes of vanilla. The taste on the palate is fresh, complex, persistent, balanced; the tannins are integrated with the body of the wine which is silky and harmonious. The acid component is important and elegantly combines with the alcoholic one. Notes of raspberry, currant, gooseberry, with a light note of white pepper and cacao powder on the finish.


Suggested food pairings while tasting this Tuscan red wine
