This is the great wine of Castello Nipozzano from the Mormoreto vineyard planted in 1976. The first vintage was from the harvest of 1983 and since then this wine has only been produced in the most favourable of years. It was not produced in 1984, 1987, 1989, 1992, 1998 and 2002. Since the 2013 vintage, the elegance of Sangiovese has further enhanced the qualities of the Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot grapes planted 150 years ago and used in the production, resulting in a wine even more strongly tied to its terroir. Mormoreto is a wine of great depth, opulence and refinement that can be cellared for many years.
Country of Origin:
Largely Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, and Sangiovese, with a touch of Petit Verdot
The wine presents itself with an impenetrably intense ruby colour and a complex nose: red fruits such as blackberry and raspberry meet the balanced floral notes of bergamot and the spiced ones of bitter cocoa, cocoa butter, roasted coffee bean, light vanilla, cloves, jasmine and grey tea.
In the mouth the wine is fresh, complex, persistent and balanced. The tannins blend well with the body resulting in a wine that is velvety to the palate. The acidic component is noteworthy and joins elegantly with the alcoholic content. Notes of mixed berries, black and raspberry, and a light liquorish note accompany a peaty whisky, tobacco and vanilla finish.
