Wine Description:
Castello Nipozzano Montesodi is a premium wine produced by the renowned winemaker, Marchesi de' Frescobaldi. This wine comes from the Nipozzano estate, located in the heart of the Chianti Rufina appellation in Tuscany, Italy. The vineyard features a unique terroir with a mix of clay, limestone, and sandstone soils, which impart a distinct character to the wine. The winemaking process involves a careful selection of the best Sangiovese grapes, which are fermented and aged in oak barrels for a minimum of 18 months. The resulting wine is a full-bodied and complex red with intense aromas of dark fruit, spice, and tobacco. Castello Nipozzano Montesodi Toscana is a perfect choice for wine enthusiasts looking for a premium Italian wine with a unique character and style. Read more

Taste Flavor
info
Wine sweetness is a measure of the amount of sugar present in a wine. Sweetness in wine can range from bone dry (no sugar present) to lusciously sweet (high sugar content). Sweetness is usually determined by the variety and ripeness of the grapes used, as well as the winemaking process.
Sweetness

Intensity
info
Wine body refers to the weight and texture of wine on the palate. In other words, it is the degree of body a wine has, ranging from light-bodied to full-bodied. Wines with higher body appear to have a thicker texture and can sometimes coat the palate.
Body
info
Wine acidity refers to the tartness of a wine, which gives a tingling sensation on the side of the tongue. A metallic-like sharp taste is also associated with high acidity. Sometimes a high level of sweetness, such as in luscious dessert wines, can disguise a high level of acidity. Acidity can range from soft to searing.
Acidity
info
Wine tannin gives wine its textural mouthfeel and astringency. Tannin is a natural compound found in grape skins, seeds, and stems. It contributes to the structure and helps to balance out the sweetness of the fruit. Tannins are usually discussed when it comes to red wines, even though some white and rosé wines with certain wine making techniques can also contain tannins.
