A wine that embodies in a particular way the Tuscan tradition and the wine-making skills of the peasant civilization of Tuscany. Composed of the prevalence of Sangiovese, to which are added complementary varietals such as Malvasia Nera, Colorino, Canaiolo. This wine, chosen by the Frescobaldi family to continue the tradition of reserving a "Private Collection" for its newborns, originates from the oldest vines of the Nipozzano Castle, equipped with a deep root system. Of great complexity and harmony, it ages for 24 months in oak barrels according to the ancient Tuscan tradition. The origin of the grapes is that of the Castello di Nipozzano estate. The maceration time is 20 days, with frequent pumping over of the must. The malolactic fermentation takes place immediately after the alcoholic one. It is then aged in oak barrels. The aging time is 24 months in oak barrels, followed by 3 months in the bottle before being marketed.
