Frescobaldi Mormoreto Toscana IGT
A deep ruby announces Mormoreto, almost opaque in its concentration. The nose is ultra complex, delivering inebriating draughts of wild blackberry, raspberry, redcurrant, dried plum, dates, and wild red berry fruit, delicately lifted by floral impressions of sweetbriar and violets. Gradually emerging to deepen the rich bouquet even further are spicier nuances of vanilla, cocoa powder, tobacco leaf, and roast espresso bean, which act as a delicious foil to pungent notes of balsam and chlorophyll. A crisp, nervy acidity complements a suite of silky tannins, and both contribute to a palate that is notable for its warmth and roundedness. A finely-balanced, leisurely progression culminates in a lengthy, subtly-aromatic finish. Terrific patner with any long-cooked meat dish, such as marinades, pot roasts, and stews. Delicious with aged cheeses.
