Editor’s Pick: Marchesi de’ Frescobaldi Nipozzano Vecchie Viti Chianti Ruffina Riserva 2011

Editor’s Rating


93 Points. A sweet-souled and instantly appealing aromatic profile that makes your mouth water with whiffs of sweet-spicy tobacco, cherry and cherry skin, chocolate, and licorice. These aromas turn to a palate that’s fine-grained yet still grippy, with ripe sweet fruit, espresso grounds, cocoa powder, plum and dark cherry, and a hint of Mediterranean herbs. Flavors of leather and tobacco eventually make themselves known, and lead to a finish that incorporates a subtle but important note of dried flowers and lavender. Drink now to 2024. -BF
