The Cipressi wine gets its name from the Cipressi trees that are atop one of the hillsides of the chateau. Its color is ruby red with excellent depth and brilliant reflections. The fragrance is intense, with excellent complexity and pleasant notes of raspberries, cherries, and blackberry fruits.

Harvest Note
The weather conditions enabled a very selective harvesting, waiting till each variety reached its perfect technological and phenological ripeness, which made all the difference. It will be an unforgettable vintage. 2015 is a vintage to remember as one of the greatest of the last two decades.
Tasting Note
Cipressi Nizza is an ample, well-structured wine that possesses excellent harmony and freshness.
Food Pairing
This is a very pleasant wine, easy to match with many international dishes. It is especially good with pasta dishes with different sauces as well as poultry and red meats (beef and pork).
