Nipozzano Vecchie Viti boasts a lovely ruby-red colour, luminous and brilliant. The nose opens with very ripe fruits of cherry, strawberry and raspberry. Sweet scents of cotton candy, wild rose, notes of walnut and walnut husks all follow, along with spicy notes of cloves and star anise. The palate is persistent, fresh, very smooth with a mineral finish.
A Florentine family with thirty generations dedicated to the production of great wines across six Tuscan estates. The Frescobaldi style brings together tradition and innovation. With the goal of being the most prestigious Tuscan wine producer, Frescobaldi firmly believes in respecting the local land while focusing on the highest quality grapes for its wines. The Frescobaldis own over 1,000 hectares of vineyards, all located in excellent areas for the production of fine wines. Directly managed by its family members, the Frescobaldi name is deeply connected with the history of art, culture, trade, finance and wine in Italy.
Spur pruned cordon and Guyot. Medium to high density planting from 2,000 to 6,000 vines per hectare.
The grapes were hand harvested from mid September to mid October and then softly pressed. Fermentation took place in stainless steel tanks at less than 30C and lasted for 13 days. Each grape variety was kept separately. Maceration lasted for 25 days. Malolactic fermentation took place in stainless steel tanks immediately after alcoholic fermentation. The wine was matured for 24 months in barrique.
Pairs well with classic dishes such as a dense Tuscan soup, pappardelle with wild boar ragù, and cannelloni stuffed with meat and béchamel sauce.
