So much mineral, blueberry, and fresh rose aromas and flavors. Full body, fine tannins and a bright finish. Lots of old vine character.
Plum, cherry and bitter almond notes lend bite to this red, which also evokes hints of vanilla, toast, earth and underbrush. Vibrant, with dense tannins, building to a long finish. Drink now through 2020.
The wine appears a very intense ruby red, with a rim, still quite vibrant, that shows no effects of spending two years in oak. Predominating on the nose are notes of wild black berryfruit, such as blackcurrant and wild blackberry; although the fragrances will further evolve in the bottle, spicy notes of black pepper and cinnamon are already evident, and it will be fascinating to follow their evolution over the next years. The palate evidences some astringency, though within acceptable limits, fine sapidity, and full volume. Nipozzano Vecchie Viti concludes with a long-lingering finish infused with crisp, appealing fruit.
Vecchie Viti easily brings out the best qualities in the classic Tuscan ribollita soup, pappardelle in wild boar sauce, and meat-filled cannelloni. It is outstanding with baked meats and roasts.
