Castello Nipozzano | Tuscany

Castello Nipozzano Vineyards in Chianti Ruffina

The ancient defensive stronghold of Florence from the year 1000, Castello Nipozzano is the most celebrated and historic property of the Frescobaldi family. According to popular belief Nipozzano means 'without a well' a testimony to the area’s lack of water and ideal circumstances for the cultivation of grapevines.

The first documentation about the renowned wines of Nipozzano dates from the Renaissance when great artists such as Donatello and Michelozzo Michelozzi regularly purchased wine from the estate.

A unique feature of the territory is attributed to the foresight of an ancestor of the Frescobaldi family who, in 1855 began the cultivation of varieties previously unknown in Tuscany such as Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. After more than a century of patient care, these magnificent vines produce the great wine of the estate, Mormoreto.
