The 2009 Chianti Rufina Riserva Nipozzano is very pretty. Veins of minerality support an expressive core of dark red berries in this silky, long Chianti. The 2009 impresses for its persistence and fine overall balance. Ideally, the 2009 is enjoyed while the fruit retains its vibrancy. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2019.
Color: Bright ruby red. Bouquet: Intense, mature fruit aromas. Taste: Rich, well structured, berry fruit flavors. Serving Suggestions: This wine is particularly well suited to meat and first courses.
