Recommended Posts

2001 Moris Avvoltore Maremma Toscana, 75% Sangiovese, 20% Cabernet Sauvignon, 5% Syrah, $55, 14% alc.: Like pouring a blend of motor oil and ink, this exudes effusive aromas of huge dense black fruits that follow through on the palate, and with air, fan out to show rich, steely blackberry and black currant adorned with supporting notes of cedar, dark chocolate, coffee and leather. Very smooth, yet dense and concentrated, this opens and opens, showing more and more of what it has; it doesn't so much evolve as simply expand in its generosity. This has the structure to take it well down the road, and yet it's already so good, with an hour's worth of air, I'd be hard pressed not to open another soon, just to show it off to friends. An exciting, dare I say, sexy wine.
