2012 Avvoltore, Maremma Toscana, Morisfarms (6 x Bottle)

Italy Tuscany Maremma

The 2012 Avvoltore is very pretty. This is an unusually restrained vintage for the Avvoltore. Sweet red cherry, raspberry jam, herb and tobacco notes develop nicely. The 2012 is not a blockbuster, but it will drink nicely pretty much upon release. There is certainly plenty to like in this gracious, nuanced wine from Morisfarms.

Vinous

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.
