Nipozzano Vecchie Viti has an intense ruby-red colour; the nose is enveloping with dark berry aromas sustained by
the sweetness of vanillaand accompanied by pleasant toasted cocoa notes. The richness of the fruit, already detected on
the nose, is confirmed in the mouth to be complex and persistent, with notes of blackberry and gooseberry. The wellbalanced tannins give asoft result, elegantly incorporating themselves into the wine's intriguing structure.
Wine pairing: Excellent with game, from the most delicate, such as quail, partridge and woodcock, to the most elaborate,
such as venison.
