Description

A blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, and Sangiovese, the Mormoreto 2017 spent two years in oak barrels before release. A beautifully rich, ruby-red colour wine with pleasantly fresh aromas of blackberries, blueberries and raspberries. The palate is balsamic and minty with hints of bergamot, jasmine, clove and vanilla. The bottle age is also bringing tertiary aromas of leather, cocoa powder and coffee bean. Smooth, fresh and silky, this is a really cracking wine.

Nestled amongst the vineyards and hills of Chianti Rufina, 20 minutes from Florence, Castello Nipozzano is an historic estate dating back beyond the Renaissance. In 1855 an ancestor of the Frescobaldi family began to cultivate varieties previously unknown in Tuscany on the estate, such as Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot, which today go into the top wine, Mormoreto. They also produce a range of wines from the native Sangiovese variety.

Food matches: Serve with hearty, slow-cooked meat dishes like ragu.
