2018 Haurio Colli Senesi Mormoraia
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)
*Case price discount: Mix any 12 bottles (or 9l equivalent) of wine or 6 bottles of Champagne, Spirits, Sweet Wine or Fortified to get the 'case price' for each bottle.
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!
We are so proud of our incredible selection of Italian wines, that the real difficulty has been curbing our enthusiasm and creating just one sensible case for Christmas! You'll find here six extraordinary reds, from Top to Toe of the 'boot' and even a gem from Sicily too.
A gorgeous diversity of styles, intrinsically Italian yet these wines will satisfy lovers of Claret and wines from the Rhone valley too. This is a brilliant introduction to what is happening across Italy - such an exciting place a the moment for top quality, exciting winemaking - at very sensible prices. Add a little Italian flair to proceedings this Christmas. This year more than ever, we all need to start tasting la Dolce Vita!
