Frescobaldi Mormoreto 2013 (3L)
- Bordeaux Blend Red
- Red Wine
This wine follows its own distinct philosophy that marries it into the school of super Tuscan wines, and not the Chianti Rufina appellation where it is born. The 2013 Mormoreto is a bend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot that seems intent on escaping from its small town roots. It shows much bigger aspirations. This is a thick and succulent red wine with dark plum, blackberry, chocolate and exotic spice. The mouthfeel is lasting and powerful. - WA
Castello di Nipozzano is a wine estate in Chianti, one of several in Tuscany owned by the major Italian wine producer Marchesi de Frescobaldi. The winery makes Sangiovese from the Chianti Rufina sub-region, but is also known for its early plantings of non-regional varieties such as Cabernet Sauvignon for use in IGT wines. The Nipozzano property is characterized by the 11th-Century castle that now houses the winery's cellar and barrel room.
