The top wine from the estate, Mormoreto is a rich, elegant wine with intense blueberry and Morello cherry aromas and warm balsamic and savoury notes integrated into a mouthfilling texture.
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.
A 25 hectare vineyard planted in 1976, with more than 5,800 vines per hectare. Two types of soil run through the vineyard. The first is rich in sand and well drained with a reasonable presence of calcium. The second is a limestone soil, rich in clay.
The grapes were hand-harvested and then softly pressed. Fermentation took place over 12 days in stainless steel tanks at less than 30°C. Maceration lasted for 28 days, with malolactic fermentation taking place in barriques immediately following alcoholic fermentation. The wine was aged for 24 months in barriques and was cellared for six months in bottle.
Aromas of blueberry and blackberry are followed by black cherry and balsamic notes. A rich and velvety wine with a dense and textured palate through to a long finish marked by eucalyptus and balsamic notes.
A terrific partner to slow-cooked meat dishes, marinades and stews.
