The Mormoreto Toscana IGT 2012 by Castello di Nipozzano of the Frescobaldi family captivates with its impenetrable deep ruby red colour in the glass, with complex aromas of ripe red fruits such as blackberries and raspberries, notes of bitter cocoa powder, cocoa butter and roasted coffee beans and light notes of vanilla and cinnamon. In the taste, Mormoreto 2012 reveals itself persistent, round, soft and velvety, on the palate and in the aftertaste, the impressions perceived by the nose are confirmed, additionally enriched with a clear note of melted chocolate, raspberry freshness, whisky and vanilla tobacco.
Production of the Mormoreto by Castello di Nipozzano
The Frescobaldi family red wine from Castello di Nipozzano is named after the Mormoreto vineyard, which was created in 1976 and since 1983 has produced this award-winning, opulent and long-lasting wine, only produced in the best vintages.
After the manual harvest, for the Mormoreto 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot and Petit Verdot are fermented separately for 35 days in stainless steel tanks at a controlled temperature, macerated and left on the skins for a further 20 days. The alcoholic fermentation is immediately followed by malolactic fermentation. The cuvée is then aged for 24 months in partly new, partly used barriques for the second time and then aged in the bottle for a further 6 months.
