This wine, chosen by the Frescobaldi family to continue the tradition of reserving a Private Collection for its new born, originates from the oldest vines of the Nipozzano Castle, with a deep root system. Of great complexity and harmony, it ages for 24 months in oak barrels as per ancient Tuscan tradition. Intense and brilliant ruby ​​red. On the nose the floral and fruity notes are perfectly integrated with the spiciness. Rosehip and violet stand out among all, and are balanced with hints of small red berries. A persistent balsamicity and an elegant toasting complete the nose. On the palate it is silky and with a fine tannic texture. The acid component is perfectly balanced with the alcoholic one. The finish is long and persistent.
