"This is one of the most value-conscious and versatile red wines to come from Tuscany, and these are two attributes that are consistently awarded to this wine year after year. The Frescobaldi Chianti Rúfina Riserva Nipozzano offers a repeat performance and indeed adds a little more bang for your buck, thanks to the general excellence of this vintage. Sangiovese-based wines from are linked by a sense of linearity and focus. Red cherry and cassis play a leading role with grilled herb, potting soil and light shadings of iron ore. This is a mid-weight expression with plenty of extra texture, softness and freshness on the close."
