La Tenuta di Nozzole is not only recognized for producing some of the best Chianti Classicos in the region, and other versions like Annata, Riserva, Gran Selezione and Vin Santo, but also for its enotourism at Villa Nozzole, a luxurious villa for all those who want to travel and live the real experience of Tuscany.
Aging: French oak barrels for 10-12 months.
Tasting Notes: 100% Sangiovese. Generous aromas of macerated cherries and mature fresh fruit. Ample, full and assertive on the palate with a lingering finish and an equal balance of soft tannins. Pair this wine with Florentine Steak, pasta, pizza.
"A firm and lightly chewy wine with blueberry, currant and crushed-stone aromas and flavors. Medium to full body. Flavorful finish. Needs time to soften. Pure sangiovese. New wave. Better after 2020." ~ 94 JS
“Black cherry, chocolate, leather, licorice, smoke and new oak infuse the 2016 Chianti Classico Riserva Villa Nozzole with notable depth. Pliant and supple, with plenty of forward fruit and bright aromatic top notes, the 2016 has plenty to offer. I would prefer to drink it over the next handful of years, give or take. This is nicely done”.~ 90 Vinous
