2009 Frescobaldi Mormoreto (Tuscany, Italy)
Wine - Red $64.99 (750mL)
Mormoreto is the Castello?s most prestigious wine, still produced from the vineyard of the same name, as it was for its first vintage, in 1983. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, and Petit Verdot, planted 150 years ago, have, over time, formed an intimate bond with this terroir and now bring out all of its unique qualities. It is a wine of great depth, opulent yet refined, and cellars for many years.
Terrific patner with any long-cooked meat dish, such as marinades, pot roasts, and stews. Delicious with aged cheeses.
