92

Lots of mineral, dried berry and cherry aromas and flavors. Full body, bright acidity and a silky finish. Plenty going on. Love the dark fruit and mineral character on the finish. Drink or hold.

Product Description:

"Nipozzano 2012 is ruby coloured with purple reflections. Entry on the nose is floral, clean aromas of sweet violet which prevail over the fruitiness. Then, raspberry, blackcurrant and cherry, accompanied by liquorice scents and spicy notes of Muscat and white pepper. At the end sweet notes of black plum jam and almond candy appear. Entry on the palate is warm and decisive, with tannins readily evident. The texture appears decisive, a typical characteristic of Chianti Rùfina. Long persistence. Aftertaste at the end dominated by floral and spicy notes at the back of the mouth." -Winery
