Chianti Rufina Riserva DOCG Nipozzano 2016- Frescobaldi



Chianti Rufina Riserva DOCG The emblematic wine of Castello Nipozzano, the historic Frescobaldi estate located a few miles north-east of Florence, Nipozzano Riserva is symbolic of the Tuscan wine-making tradition and the continuing link with the terroir.

VINIFICATION AND AGEING: Harvest took place in the first few days of September. As soon as the grapes were harvested, they were taken to the cellar. Once de-stemmed, the natural fermentation process began in thermo-regulated stainless steel vats. The wine remained in the vats to complete maceration. After racking, malolactic fermentation took place in steel as well. At the end of the year, the wine was transferred into barriques, where it was aged for a further 24 months. A further period in the bottle brought Nipozzano 2016 to its full expression as a wine with exceptional balance.
