Description

History

The Frescobaldi family has roots in Tuscany since 1300, from when Dino Frescobaldi, a poet friend of Dante who returned the first 7 cantos of the Divine Comedy. The family acquired estates in Chianti and began producing and selling wine, planting international grape varieties in the 1800s. In the 1900s, the company innovated its production methods and saw great technological advancements; today the group is managed by Lamberto Frescobaldi, the thirtieth generation of the family. The Castello di Nipozzano is an ancient defensive fortress, where Sangiovese is the main grape variety, but Cabernet, Merlot, and Petit Verdot are also grown to produce Mormoreto and other great wines.

Grapes used

Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Petit Verdot

Production Method

The grapes are hand-harvested and sorted twice, first in the vineyard and then in the winery. Fermentation and maceration take place at controlled temperature, with gentle pump-overs. The wine undergoes malolactic fermentation and then ages in French oak barrels for 24 months. It will then rest in the bottle before being sold.

Alcoholic content

14%

Tasting notes

It has a complex bouquet with aromas of ripe red fruit, spices, herbs, balsamics, and minerals. On the palate, the wine is balanced with a soft and full body, good acidity and tannins, and a long, elegant finish.

Possible Pairings

Mormoreto is a great, purebred wine produced in the Chianti Rufina and skillfully combines territory with knowledge in the winery. It is perfect as a meditation wine thanks to its great balance and complexity, especially if left to rest for a few years in the cellar. The pairing is perfect with red meats or game, especially if well cooked and seasoned with aromas and spices.

Frescobaldi

The history of the Frescobaldi family in Tuscany is often the story of Tuscany itself; tradition and roots date back as far as the 1300s, when Dino Frescobaldi, a poet friend of Dante Alighieri, returned to him the first seven cantos of the Divine Comedy, allowing him to complete the work. Around the same time, the family acquired some estates in the Chianti area and began producing and selling wine. Many centuries later, in about 1855, they were the ones to plant some international grape varieties such as Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Pinot Noir, and Chardonnay right here in Tuscany. The 1900s was a century of great revolution for Italian agriculture and therefore for the company as well; production methods were innovated and new possessions were acquired thanks to the wise guidance of Vittorio, Ferdinando, and Leonardo Frescobaldi. Today, the baton has been passed to Lamberto Frescobaldi, a member of the thirtieth generation of the family, who, armed with the knowledge he has acquired, manages the family heritage. The company boasts among its estates Castello di Nipozzano and Castello di Pomino in the Chianti Rufina area, Rémole alle Sieci, Tenuta di Perano in Gaiole in Chianti, one of the family's most recent acquisitions, Gorgona on the homonymous penitentiary island, Tenuta Castiglioni in Montespertoli, Tenuta Castelgiocondo in Montalcino, Tenuta Ammiraglia in the Maremma, and the latest addition Tenuta Calimaia in Montepulciano. The Frescobaldi family manages and owns Ornellaia in Bolgheri.
