Italy → Tuscany
esbrown reviewed Moris Farms Vermentino di Toscana 2007 on April 5, 2010
I have always liked the wines of Moris Farms, who despite their very English name have resided on the coast of Tuscany for over 300 years. The Vermentino is an intriguing wine that begins with apple, honeyscukle and peach aromas above a palate that is surprisingly complex for the price point. It starts with crisp apples, baking spices and a hint of citrus before more of the spices and a decidedly creamy note takes over in the middle. The finish feels as if it will be long and lush but it is balanced by fine malic acidity which leaves the palate refreshed instead of bogged down. This is an excellent value and further proof that life outside of Pinot Grigio really does exist in Italy.
