The top wine from the estate, Mormoreto is a rich, elegant wine with intense blueberry and blackberry aromas and warm balsamic notes.
Tradition, innate elegance and the essence of the Renaissance: Tuscany exudes an aura of timelessness that has inspired generations of the Frescobaldi family and is now an integral part of their vineyards. The Nipozzano Estate is located in one of the traditional areas of Chianti: Chianti Rufina, which is the smallest and most elevated Chianti sub-appellation. The 11th century castle is located in the heart of the prestigious Chianti Rufina, which holds the family cellar including wines dating back to 1864. The uniqueness of the Nipozzano terroir continues to produce wines with a wide range of aromas and extraordinary longevity.
The grapes were hand harvested and then softly pressed. Fermentation took place in stainless steel tanks at less than 30°C and lasted for 12 days. Maceration lasted for 28 days. Malolactic fermentation took place in barriques immediately following alcoholic fermentation. The wine was aged for 24 months in barrique and six months in bottle.
Ruby, red with violet highlights. Aromas of blueberry and blackberry are followed by black cherry and balsamic notes. On the palate the tannins are textured and dense. It is rich and velvety with a very long finish maked by eucalyptus and balsamic notes.
A terrific partner to slow-cooked meat dishes, marinades and stews.
