The Fiore del Moro wine

The Fiore del Moro wine interprets in a more spontaneous way the terroir and the grape varietals shared with his brother the Moro di Sangiovanni wine.

The Fiore del Moro is the wine for the wine lovers who prefer not to wait but can not give up excellence. A wine with a more delicate structure in which the aromatic richness with hints of fruit, flowers and spices is in equilibrium with its delicate tannins.

It gives its best paired with pasta dishes, steaks, hard cheeses of medium seasoning.

Weather conditions

In 2011 a rainy Winter was followed by a cold Spring that slowed down the flowering and the formation of the grapes.

The Summer has been very hot in July and August and this led to an harvest that took place with temperatures above the average for the period.

 

Tasting notes

The Fiore del Moro 2011 wine shows a very deep dark ruby red.

Nose very clean and intense, complex, very fruity with slight notes of jam, fused with a delicate spiciness.

The mouth shows a very soft and sweet attack followed by a light acidulous vein, almost citrine that leads to a final with an important presence of soft and sweet tannins with notes of youth.

Weather conditions

In 2012 a dry Winter and a Summer without rain and with high temperatures both during day and night.

Some rain in September and mild temperatures have developed the ideal conditions for the complete maturation of the grapes and for what can be defined a very good vintage.

 

Tasting notes

The Fiore del Moro 2012 wine has an intense, ruby red color.

The nose is very intense, clean and elegant with slight notes of wood well integrated with floral and fruity aromas.

The mouth is very balanced, with a very soft attack, a good volume and great persistence, the final shows extremely smooth and silky tannins.
