Toscana IGT. Mormoreto, a single-vineyard cru of Castello di Nipozzano, is a Supertuscan of great elegance produced from an assemblage of 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Merlot, and 15 % Cabernet Franc. Aged 24 months new French oak barriques.
A striking purple, dense but brilliant, greets the eye. On the nose, emphatic spice aromas, predominantly cinnamon and clove, emerge immediately, with bright redcurrant adding to the complexity and subtle notes of toasty oak further enriching the broad spectrum of aromatics. A smooth fabric of dense tannins immediately impresses on the palate, and as Mormoreto steadily expands, a firm acidity nicely complements a body that is solid but not over-powerful. Clean, well-delineated aromas are again delightful on the finish, which is quite lengthy.
