Review: 2015 Frescobaldi Nipozzano Riserva Vecchie Viti Chianti Rufina

The 2015 bottling of this wine is drier than the 2011, its cherry-fueled core tempered by a heavy tea leaf, bay leaf, and gentle oregano notes. Drying and almost astringent on the finish, this well-aged Chianti feels like it still has one foot planted firmly in the earth, dusty and tight with a hint of balsamic on the finish. It’s a worthwhile but fairly traditional expression of Chianti — particularly considering the price.
