History
The Nipozzano Estate is located in one of the traditional areas of Chianti: Chianti Rufina, which is the smallest and most elevated Chianti sub-appellation. The 11th century castle is located in the heart of the prestigious Chianti Rufina, which holds the family cellar including wines dating back to 1864. The uniqueness of the Nipozzano terroir continues to produce wines with a wide range of aromas and extraordinary longevity
Regional Information
The vineyards of Nipozzano are found approximately 20 miles to the east of Florence. Located in the heart of the Chianti Rufina territory, the vines are grown on a hillside that overlooks the valley and the River Arno. The balance of altitude, soil type and a cool ventilated microclimate provides excellent conditions for perfect growth and produces wines of harmonious character and great longevity

Vinification Details
A blend of 90% Sangiovese with 10% complementary grapes. Each variety was fermented separately as controlled temperatures of 30°C, which lasted for 13 days. The grapes were macerated on the skins for 25 days with frequent pumping over to extract colour, flavour and fine tannins. The wine went through malolactic fermentation immediately after fermentation was complete. A proportion of the wine was matured in second and third barriques for 24 months. Three months bottle ageing
