Marchesi de' Frescobaldi Mormoreto 2012


SKU 37654


Mormoreto appears an opaque, deep ruby red. A rich, complex nose boasts well-ripened wild berries, such as blackberry and raspberry, baker's cocoa powder and cocoa butter, roasted espresso bean, subtle notes of vanilla and cinnamon, and hints of clove, jasmine, and grey tea leaves. On the palate, it is smooth and well-rounded, echoing the aromas encountered on the nose but with a more pronounced influence of bitter chocolate, crisp raspberry, single-malt whisky, and vanilla tobacco. Terrific partner with any long-cooked meat dish, such as marinades, pot roasts, and stews. Delicious with aged cheeses.

Wine SpectatorThis is round, with black cherry and blackberry flavors augmented by mineral and tobacco notes. A smoky element emerges as this cruises to a long, spice- and mineral-filled aftertaste. Delivers serious tannins that need time to integrate. Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot and Petit Verdot. Best from 2018 through 2030. 2,750 cases made.
