RatingNot Yet Rated

Historically dedicated to new births in the Frescobaldi family, this robust Riserva originates from the oldest vines of Castello di Nipozzano. The wine is aged for 24 months in oak barrels to keep in line with ancient Tuscan tradition. An elegant infusion of red currants, rose petals and cherries lead into a firm palate of dark fruits, purple flowers, spiced minerals and pipe tobacco that will intrigue any lover of Sangiovese. Bright, focused and wonderfully energetic, firm tannins and a lingering finish make this a pleasure to drink now or in a decade.
