TASTING NOTES:

Nipozzano is ruby coloured with purple reflections. Entry on the nose is floral, clean aromas of sweet violet which prevail over the fruitiness. Then, raspberry, blackcurrant and cherry, accompanied by liquorice scents and spicy notes of Muscat and white pepper. At the end sweet notes of black plum jam and almond candy appear.

Entry on the palate is warm and decisive, with tannins readily evident. The texture appears decisive, a typical characteristic of Chianti Rùfina. Long persistence. Aftertaste at the end dominated by floral and spicy notes at the back of the mouth.

HISTORY:

From an early economic base in the Italian community of cloth merchants in Bruges, the Frescobaldi expanded their banking interests to their home city of Florence in the 13th century. Their power base in the city's affairs lay in their participation in the small network that controlled the great cloth-working Arti: the Arte della Lana, the Arte di Calimala, the guild of cloth finishers and merchants in foreign cloth, and the Cambio, or money exchange.

In Florence the Frescobaldi found themselves on the wrong side in the attempted power coup of the Grandi in 1343 and were henceforth barred from public service in the Republic, but the Frescobaldi remained prominent in the lesser offices still open to them, such as podestà in the small towns governed from Florence, and through the web of marriage connections among the Florentine ruling class.
