2003 Nipozzano Riserva

Frescobaldi's Nipozzana Riserva is one of great wonders of the wine world - big, bold and interesting, and well made year after year. How do they do it for this price? The 2003 has great scents of blackberries, leather and spice on the nose. A bit rustic, it has nice tannins, fruit, and decent length. An excellent match for pizza, but would pair well with anything. A staple, highly recommended.

13.5% alcohol
Score: 16/20
Cost: C$21.
