The wine

Nipozzano Riserva is an intriguing and involving wine, ruby red in color, with a good consistency. On the nose it opens with a strong fruity component of blackberry, blueberry and black cherry.

In the mouth it is warm and soft, with a beautiful persistence and with a remarkable taste-olfactory correspondence. Excellent in combination with grilled red meat, baked lamb and lightly aged pecorino cheese.

Despite these large numbers, Frescobaldi still has a very strong territorial identity, which translates into wines expressed at the highest levels in each territory. Frescobaldi embodies the essence of Tuscany, its extraordinary...
