2018 Haurio Colli Senesi Mormoraia

IN STOCK
Grapes Sangiovese
Colour Red
Origin Italy, Tuscany
Sub-district Colli Senesi

A sleek and supple style, aromatics are subtly spicy, with blueberry, blackberry fruit core. There are notes of earth, tobacco and something a little savoury swirl around on the lithe and fulsome palate. Decent grip of ripe tannins give structure and length, a really lovely medium weight Sangiovese. L&S (Jun 2020)

Mormoraia

Alessandro Passoni is the second generation here to run this beautiful estate since his father bought the old convent back in 1980 and started to regenerate the vineyards. The name comes from the property's religious history as a convent, with the murmur of the nuns as they recited their prayers that once emanated from the walls like a 'Mormoraia'. Pino Passoni and his wife Franca passed over the reins to their children in 2012 and the farm has been worked organically since 2013. This is an estate on the move with energy and ever better practices in the vineyards and clever gentle work in the cellar. The results are great and these wines get better and better!
