Marchesi de' Frescobaldi Mormoreto 2004
|Brand||Marchesi de' Frescobaldi|
Wine SpectatorShows complex aromas of currant, Indian spices, blackberry and flowers. Full-bodied, with fabulous tannins that are thick and silky and a long, caressing finish. The palate is also multifaceted, with bright acidity. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Cabernet Franc. Best after 2008. 3,500 cases made.
Wine AdvocateThe estate's 2004 Mormoreto is a blend of 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Merlot and 15% Cabernet Franc aged 24 months in French oak. It offers expressive aromatics and jammy sweet dark fruit with an expansive personality and excellent length, although the tannins are not as refined as I would have hoped in this vintage. Anticipated maturity: 2009-2019.
