Wine Advocate Review
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 Review
Very tight and refined with a linear structure and precision. Medium body, fine tannins and plenty of berry, tea leaf and lemon rind flavors. Pretty and focused. Delicious as always. Drink now.
Wine Tasting Notes
Nipozzano Riserva greets the eye with a deep purplish red. The nose is remarkably rich and multi-faceted, showing cleanly-delineated aromas of sour cherry, raspberry, and dried plum, lifted in turn by spicier impressions of black pepper, vanilla, cocoa powder, and espresso bean. A warm alcohol complements its smooth overall texture in the mouth, and a clean, vibrant acidity and silky, well-integrated tannins contribute to an impressive elegance. An almost-endless finish, with abundant aromatic fruit, completes a harmonious, well-balanced wine.
