2007 Frescobaldi Nipozzano Riserva Chianti Rufina Wine Review by Billy
Palate: Playful! This Chianti Rufina has full body with and acid-tannin balance that dances in your mouth. It is as easy going as it it light on its feet. But this is not some amateur. It plays all around your mouth with the practiced ease of Gene Kelly and Danny Kay on stage.
Finish: Plum fruit on the finish with herbal hints of rosemary and oregano. Italian to the core!
Overall: This is an amazing bottle of 2007 Chianti from the Nipozzano vineyards of Frescobaldi. I paid about $25 for this at the local store. It is an expertly crafted and immensely enjoyable Italian wine that shows class, elegance while remaining accessible and inviting! Magnificent!
