      Avvoltore Rosso Toscana IGT 2012

      Avvoltore is a fantastically elegant Sangiovese refined with Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah. Deep dark and with a grandiose bouquet, strongly fruity with light spicy and vegetarian hints, it tastes concentrated and soft at the same time. The brilliant finale is highly individual and stirring. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Dense and deep ruby. Very intense and inviting nose, opened with notes of blackberry and mulberry, in the background fresh notes of orange peel, playful. On the palate much strong tannin, dense and interwoven in the anterior part, slightly coarse and slightly drying in the posterior part, still needs storage". Falstaff

      "Blackberry jam, cassis, mint, licorice, violets and dark spices hit the palate in the 2012 Avvoltore. A huge, inky wine, the 2012 possesses tons of depth, with just enough vibrancy and freshness to balance the overtness of the vintage. Unapologetically rich and intense, the 2012 delivers the goods, big time. What a gorgeous wine this is." Antonio Galloni

    About the winemakers
    Morisfarms
    Tuscany | Maremma
    Morisfarms

    Rare, but true - there is actually a Tuscan vineyard with an English name: Morisfarms. When the Moris family founded the company, they chose the American term for "farm" as a supplement, because one of the brothers lived in San Francisco and the family, who had been working in agriculture for two centuries, had cultivated various agricultural products in the United States. Today the clan has more than a dozen cousins, almost half of whom work passionately on the wine farm. The farm, which covers more than 450 hectares, is managed by Adolfo Parentini, owner of the estate and son-in-law of its founder Gualtier Luigi Moris. The ancestors of the Moris family had already moved from Spain to the Maremma two centuries ago in order to fulfil their dream of their own winery.

    The name of the company, located between Siena and Fallonica, already indicates that Morisfarms is a group of goods with different activities. Near Massa Marittima is located on a steep hill called Poggio all'Avvoltore - which supplies the grapes for the premium wine of the same name - is the oldest part of the winery with Fattoria Poggetti. The soils here are heavy and clayey. Poggio La Mozza in Scansano near Grosseto, on the other hand, is dominated by sandy ground. Morisfarms was one of the first producers in the Maremma to dedicate themselves to a modern style. With an annual production of around 300,000 bottles, the house has secured a large share of Tuscan wine production.

    The top-class wine consultants Attilio Pagli and Andrea Paoletti are responsible as agronomists for the production of the wonderful, very independent wines - around 90 percent of which are made from Sangiovese and ten percent from international varieties. Pagli started his continuously upward career at the age of 26 on Poggio La Mozza. He introduced temperature-controlled fermentation to the white wines and brought the Syrah variety to the region. Under the supervision of Stefano Moris, Morisfarms has set itself the goal of pressing fine wines with plenty of terroir and fruit. The red wines in Poggio La Mozza are spontaneously fermented without the addition of artificial yeast. The use of wood in the air-conditioned cellar is very moderate for the higher-value plants. The barriques are only in use for three to four years. For some time now, the Tuscan wine house Morisfarms has received outstanding marks for its creations from the Critics' Guild. SUPERIORE.DE

    "With concentrated oenological know-how, the duo (Adolfo and Giulio Parentini) steers a safe course for the company while at the same time keeping an eye on the previous reasonable pricing policy."Gambero Rosso
