From this portion of land, which has always been known as Montesodi (“Hard Mountain”) due to the stony nature of the terrain, the first Chianti Rufina Cru was born in 1974. For me, it represents the wine of my youth and my most treasured memories at Castello Nipozzano, an extremely elegant and vivacious Sangiovese that still has the ability to thrill me, decades later.
Bright ruby red.
The bouquet confirms its appeal. opening with notes of cherry blossom, violet and hibiscus, followed by fruits such as blackcurrant and blackberry.
The palate opens with freshness and develops into greater density. The tannins are silky and mature, and the finish is long, juicy and enticing.
