Marchesi de' Frescobaldi Mormoreto 2016
|Brand||Marchesi de' Frescobaldi|
Mormoreto is a historic wine produced by Castello Nipozzano, 35km north east of Florence. A symbol of Tuscan winemaking traditions, this wine maintains specific ties with the style of its lands.
The history of the Frescobaldi family starts over a thousand years ago and is closely connected with the history of Tuscany. At the high point of medieval Florence, the Frescobaldis spread their influence as bankers, earning the title of treasures to the English crown. A little later, with the flowering of the Renaissance, they became patrons of major works in Florence, such as the construction of the Santa Trinita bridge and the Basilica of Santo Spirito.
Exotic aromas of crushed dark fruit and nectarines follow through to a full body, round and chewy tannins. Yet, there’s lovely texture and richness to this. Some tea at the finish. Bright. A blend of cabernet sauvignon, cabernet franc, sangiovese and petit verdot. Try after 2021..June/2019

Made with Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot and Sangiovese, this opens with attractive aromas of black-skinned berry, underbrush and graphite. The savory palate offers blackberry jam, tobacco and espresso alongside fine-grained tannins. Fresh acidity keeps it balanced.
