Winemaker Notes

Purple color, nose of black cherries and underbrush. Medium body, sweet and clean at first taste.

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
RP 90
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2008 Chianti is a fabulous wine. There is nothing showy here; just gorgeous varietal red fruit intermingled with floral, spiced notes in a fresh, accessible style. The inner sweetness and sheer purity of the fruit add up to an absolutely delicious wine that is impossible to resist. A friendly price tag makes this is a terrific choice for a house wine or by the case purchase. The estate's Chianti is predominantly Sangiovese with a dash of Colorino and Canaiolo, and is aged in oak. Readers who enjoy traditionally made wines will flip out over Mori's Chianti in 2008.

Giacomo Mori
The Mori family has owned this estate since the 18th century and have been growing grapes and selling wine to the local cooperative since the 1830s. However, it was not until the mid 1990s that Giacomo Mori renovated the vineyards and cellar and began estate bottling. Mori refurbished the family’s spectacular cellar and re-equipped the ancient winery and cave. The cellar is dug into live tufo rock and is built on three different levels, in order to ensure that all the wine can be racked and transferred entirely by gravity feed. He chose only low-yielding rootstock and the finest clones of Chianti’s indigenous Sangiovese and Canaiolo to resurrect his family’s 10-hectare vineyard. He has spaced the vines tight, so as to force their roots to dig deep into the earth and yield maximum complexity. He prunes very short and employs only organic fertilization. No chemical sprays are used in the vineyards or the winery.

The Napa Valley and Cabernet Sauvignon are so intrinsically linked that it is difficult to discuss one without thinking of the other. Although Cabernet has many important outposts throughout the wine world, nowhere else has it achieved such success (and, at the highest end, commanded such lofty prices) than in Napa. Here, it is responsible for bold, opulent, and dark-fruited wines with grippy tannins and a healthy dose of alcohol. The best examples can age for decades. Each of Napa’s smaller sub-AVAs imparts a different character to Cabernet, such as Rutherford’s famous dust or Stags Leap District's tart cherry flavors.
