Color: A striking purple, dense but brilliant, greets the eye Aroma: On the nose, emphatic spice aromas, predominantly cinnamon and clove, emerge immediately, with bright redcurrant adding to the complexity and subtle notes of toasty oak further enriching the broad spectrum of aromatics. Taste: A smooth fabric of dense tannins immediately impresses on the palate, and as Mormoreto steadily expands, a firm acidity nicely complements a body that is solid but not over-powerful. Clean, well-delineated aromas are again delightful on the finish, which is quite lengthy.
