Description

A former Wine Enthusiast Magazine #1 Wine of the Year in 2011 this 2016 shows the remarkable consistency that this estate is known for. Marchesi de' Frescobaldi is one of Italy's most historic wine producers, dating to the 1300s. It is also one of the most significant producers in Italy, with nine different estates—and roughly 2,500 acres—in Tuscany. The Nipozzano Estate where this Chianti Rufina is made, is an outstanding property has a unique terroir that consistently turns out exceptional, high-scoring wines. This Riserva is Sangiovese with complementary grapes, Malvasia Nera, Colorino, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon aged 24 months in French oak barrels. James Suckling scored this 92 points saying "Fresh and linear with aromas and flavors of black cherries and hints of hazelnuts and walnuts. Medium body, light tannins giving a lightly dusty texture and a crisp and bright, fresh finish. Drink now." VEGETARIAN/VEGAN.
