This wine has been selected by the Frescobaldi family to continue the tradition of reserving a Private Collection for its new productions. It originates from the oldest vines of Castello Nipozzano, which have a deep root structure. This highly complex, harmonious wine is matured for 24 months in oak barrels in accordance with the ancient Tuscan tradition.
Intense and brilliant ruby red.
On the nose, floral and fruity notes are perfectly integrated with spiciness. Dog-rose and violet stand out above all, and are balanced with hints of small red berries. A persistent balsamic quality and an elegant toasting complete the olfactory notes.
On the palate, it has a silky, fine tannic texture. The acidic component is perfectly balanced with the alcohol component. The finish is long and persistent.

Harvest End of September. Upon being harvested, the grapes were immediately taken to the cellar.
Vinification Once de-stemmed, the natural fermentation process began in cement vats, where the wine completed maceration.
Aging Its journey continued in 30 hl wooden barrels, where the wine aged for 24 months. The subsequent period in the bottle allowed for the development of a greater balance of all the wine’s components, allowing for a full appreciation of its essence once the bottle is opened.
Alcohol 13.50% by volume
Matching Pairs well with classic dishes such as ribollita, a dense Tuscan soup, pappardelle with wild boar ragù, and cannelloni stuffed with meat and béchamel sauce. Excellent with roasted or grilled red meats.
