Translated as “hard mountain," this cru IGT wine is considered one of the best expressions of Sangiovese from Frescobaldi’s Castello de Nipozzano estate. It is located in the Chianti Fufina subzone consisting of rocky soils mixed with clay and limestone. This 100% Sangiovese is aged in French and Austrian Oak for 18 months. The medium ruby color opens to a wine with some maturity and nuances of earth and leather. The mid-palate has a hint of creaminess supported by fresh acidity. This textbook Sangiovese is more rustic than traditional in style, yet well balanced.
