The Frescobaldi family selected Vecchie Viti to continue the tradition of reserving a private-collection wine for each new-born family member. This wine, sourced from the oldest, and most deeply-rooted vines at the Castello Nipozzano, displays superb complexity and harmony of all its components; it matures 24 months in large oak botti, in accord with venerable Tuscan tradition.
Predominating on the nose are notes of wild black berryfruit, such as blackcurrant and wild blackberry; although the fragrances will further evolve in the bottle, spicy notes of black pepper and cinnamon are already evident, and it will be fascinating to follow their evolution over the next years. The palate evidences some astringency, though within acceptable limits, fine sapidity, and full volume. Nipozzano Vecchie Viti concludes with a long-lingering finish infused with crisp, appealing fruit.
