Frescobaldi e L'avversione

I really like the Nipozzano chianti rufina riserva docg frescobaldi, but i had never seen it mentioned it because it's a Frescobaldi and thus considered a supertuscan? I can see all the problems that entails uniforming the palate but i still think that this wine is very good and would like to know what you think about it.

  1. The Nippozzano Chianti Rufina is usually a very good wine and a solid value. I have a bottle of the '93 Riserva in my wine rack that I should probably drink soon!

    I don't know why it does not get mentioned on this board. There are a huge amount of wines available these days and some will be ignored/overlooked for a variety of reasons. Maybe this wine gets overlooked a bit because it is a Chianti Rufina rather than a Chianti Classico. I don't think anyone would think of it as a super-tuscan, as it is clearly a Chianti.
