Marchesi de' Frescobaldi Nipozzano Riserva Chianti Rufina 2015 Rated 93JSMore from Marchesi de' Frescobaldi
James Suckling Review
This is very perfumed and fruity with blue fruits such as blackberries and blueberries. Fresh flowers, too. Medium to full body, firm and silky tannins and a fresh, driven finish. Shows definition and length for the appellation. Drink or hold.
Wine Tasting Notes
Nipozzano Riserva greets the eye with a deep purplish red. The nose is remarkably rich and multi-faceted, showing cleanly-delineated aromas of sour cherry, raspberry, and dried plum, lifted in turn by spicier impressions of black pepper, vanilla, cocoa powder, and espresso bean. A warm alcohol complements its smooth overall texture in the mouth, and a clean, vibrant acidity and silky, well-integrated tannins contribute to an impressive elegance. An almost-endless finish, with abundant aromatic fruit, completes a harmonious, well-balanced wine.
