Winemaker Notes

Nozzole Chianti Classico Riserva shows the distinctive Sangiovese fragrance of dark berries offset by pronounced woodsy notes of leather and earth. These are confirmed on the palate in a full, mellow texture and firm structure underscored by a clean acidic balance. The ripe fruit flavors carry into the aftertaste, with elegant nuances of smoke and mushrooms, ending in a long, full finish promising excellent longevity.

The Nozzole estate produces a Chianti Classico Riserva and a single-vineyard wine from the superb "La Forra" parcel. Cabernet Sauvignon, cultivated principally in another parcel of the estate planted in 1981 called "Il Pareto," yields a pure Cabernet wine first produced in the 1987 vintage. The principal white vineyards of the Nozzole estate, the "Le Bruniche" and "Casa Vecchia" vineyards, once planted in Trebbiano Toscano and Malvasia, were replanted to Chardonnay in the early 1980s. These vineyards now produce Nozzole Le Bruniche, a distinctive, pure varietal Chardonnay.
