The 2010 Chianti Rufina Nipozzano Riserva shows great balance and purity with bright fruit tones of plum, blackberry and sweet spice. It’s an easy-drinking expression that would pair with pasta and wild boar sauce or roast beef. A bright point of acidity helps to keep the palate refreshed. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2020.
Black cherry, spice, tobacco and earth flavors prevail in this dense red. The tannins verge on being gritty in texture, yet there’s adequate acidity to keep this fresh. Best from 2016 through 2024.—B.S.

Wine maker notes
Nipozzano 2009 is a lovely ruby-red. The nose opens with red cherries and pleasant floral notes of lilac. The spicy component emerges with nuances of clove and green peppercorn. The palate is characterized by a distinct tactile approach in which the stamp of the terroir is underlined by a lively minerality. The tannin texture is tight but not sharp which is also an expression of the uniqueness of the soils of Nipozzano. The finish returns to the intense fruity notes already identified on the nose.
