Winemaker Notes

The 2008 vintage of Mormoreto shows a luminous ruby red, deep and near-opaque, with purplish highlights at the rim. The nose, characteristically heady and insistent, opens to emphatic impressions of wild red berry fruit and spice, initially a complex mosaic of wild blackberry, blueberry, and dark cherry, plus dried plum and dates, further enriched with subtle notes of sweet violets and sweetbriar. These aromas are lifted by spicier notes of vanilla, cocoa powder, and roast espresso, interleaved with pungent nuances of balsam and chlorophyll. Fine-grained, silky tannins, already well inserted into the structure, contribute to the ultra-smooth mouthfeel and overall sensation of warmth, while its vibrant acidity adds to the exquisite balance of all of its components. The almost-endless finish is laced with tasty, aromatic fruit.

A terrific patner with any long-cooked meat dish, such as marinades, pot roasts, and stews. Delicious with aged cheeses.

Blend: 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Merlot, 12% Cabernet Franc, 3% Petit Verdot

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
JS 95
James Suckling
This is very ripe, with intense plum jam and floral undertones. Full bodied, with velvety tannins and plenty of intense dark fruits and lightly toasted vanilla. Powerful and balanced.
WS 90
Wine Spectator
This red starts out with sweet oak notes covering the black plum flavors. It's muscular and dense, underscored by firm tannins. With air, this smoothes out and the fruit blossoms. Decant now, or cellar short-term. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot.

Frescobaldi CastelGiocondo Estate Winery Image

The Marchesi de' Frescobaldi is one of Italy's oldest wineries, with a history dating to the 1300s. The family has included medieval knights, bankers, lawyers and patrons of the arts. The Marchesi de' Frescobaldi is one of the most significant wine producers in Italy, with nine estates—and roughly 2,500 acres—in Tuscany. The family has been growing wine since the late 19th century, when they became the first in Tuscany to import and plant French vine cuttings. Because they have been producing wines for more than 700 years, to experience Frescobaldi is to glimpse the history of Florence, from the Middle Ages to the present day.

Wine Spectator has ranked many of their offerings in the 90s and their wines are consistently listed in the magazine's Top 100 Wines of the Year, encouraging wine enthusiasts from around the globe to become familiar with some of Italy's finest wines.

Legendary in Italy for its Renaissance art and striking landscape, Tuscany is also home to many of the country’s best red wines. Sangiovese reigns supreme here, as either the single varietal, or a dominant player, in almost all of Tuscany’s best.

A remarkable Chianti, named for its region of origin, will have a bright acidity, supple tannins and plenty of cherry fruit character. From the hills and valleys surrounding the medieval village of Montalcino, come the distinguished and age-worthy wines based on Brunello (Sangiovese). Earning global acclaim since the 1970s, the Tuscan Blends are composed solely of international grape varieties or a mix of international and Sangiovese. The wine called Vine Nobile di Montepulciano, composed of Prognolo Gentile (Sangiovese) and is recognized both for finesse and power.
