Special notes

Nipozzano lies at the heart of the Chianti Ruffina DOCG region. Since the XIIth century, the proud Frescobaldi family has been closely linked to Florence's history. Today, the Marchesi are best known for their premium wines made ??from their very own vineyards inItaly. This wine in its highly modern style is raised for 24 months in barrels, it is then bottled and kept for another six months before being sold. Made from Sangiovese, a grape with origins in Tuscany's rolling hills.

    Bester Nipozzano Riserva - Der Nipozzano Riserva gehört zu den besten Weinen aus dem Chianti im Jahrgang 2011. Er vereint vollreife, saftige Frucht mit der frischen Säure und knackigen Strucktur von richtig gutem Sangiovese.
