Winemaker Notes "Nipozzano 2013 is a ruby - red with good consistency. The nose opens with a strong fruit component of blackberry, blueberry, and cherry. Sweet notes of cotton candy and spicy notes of cloves and nutmeg follow. The tannins are dense, but not harsh. The palate is warm and smooth, lovely persistence and remarkable taste -olfactory correspondence.
The Wine Advocate 91 Points "The 2013 Chianti Rufina Riserva Nipozzano is a soft and supple red wine that proudly displays its winemaking pedigree. There are no rough edges here. Instead, this wine offers a seamless link of red cherry, spice, and toasted nut aromas. The mouthfeel is on the lean side, but the wine is immediately approachable and easy to pair with any kind of grilled meat dish."
James Suckling 91 Points "Very tight and refined with a linear structure and precision. Medium body, fine tannins and plenty of berries, tea leaf, and lemon rind flavors. Pretty and focused. Delicious as always. "
