Mormoreto Frescobaldi 95js 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

"This is very ripe, with intense plum jam and floral undertones. Full bodied, with velvety tannins and plenty of intense dark fruits and lightly toasted vanilla. Powerful and balanced. Needs at least three or four years to come together...95" JamesSuckling.com 8/11 "Almost black-ruby. Fresh, fruity aromas of blackberry, blueberry, delicately spicy white pepper and sweet vanillin oak on the captivating, cabernet franc-dominated nose. Smooth and fine-grained in the mouth, with excellent clarity and cut to the red and black fruit flavors. Very polished tannins and noteworthy persistence make this an amazing achievement for a difficult year. "Maybe we were lucky to harvest at just the right time here," Frescobaldi told me modestly. I really like this wine's pure red fruit character and lingering floral perfume; it's better than most of the cabernets currently being made on the Tuscan coast because it has a more refined quality. In fact, its hauntingly pure, penetrating cabernet franc-dominated nose really brings to mind some of the best wines of Saint-Emilion and Pomerol...94" IWC 07/12
