rated this wine as 88/100
with the following review:
The 2010 Marchesi De’ Frescobaldi Chianti Nipozzano Riserva, composed of 92% Sangiovese, 4% Merlot, 4% Cabernet Sauvignon, has intense aromas of dried cherry, cedar, anise and oak on the nose and dried cherry and pomegranate on the palate. It is a medium bodied, extra-dry, fruity to integrated wine; with good acidity, dusty tannins and medium finish. It is food friendly; drink now – 2016+. My impression: NICE, 88 pts.
