    Winemaker's Notes:

    Nipozzano Riserva 2008 greets the eye with a deep purplish red color. The nose is remarkably rich and multi-faceted, showing cleanly-delineated aromas of sour cherry, raspberry, and dried plum, lifted in turn by spicier impressions of black pepper, vanilla, cocoa powder, and espresso beans. A warm alcohol complements its smooth overall texture in the mouth, and a clean, vibrant acidity and silky, well-integrated tannins contribute to an impressive elegance. An almost-endless finish, with abundant aromatic fruit, completes a harmonious, well-balanced wine.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Fresh plums and blueberries, with dark chocolate. Subtle aromas. Full body, with round and soft tannins and a long rich finish. A little chewy now. Better in 2012.

    We are enjoying the Chianti. Slight difference between 2007 and 2008.

    VERY DISAPPOINTED IN THIS WINE. VERY LITTLE BODY FOR A CHIANI RESERVA AND NOT MUCH OF A FINISH. WOULD NOT BUY THIS WINE AGAIN
