Ratings and Tasting Notes:
AG=93 The flagship 2004 Cuvee Riserva Vittorio Moretti offers a myriad of aromas and flavors. Smoke, ash, brioche, and dried apricots come alive in the glass. Though initially quite expressive, the wine turns much more intense and mineral-driven on the mid-palate and finish. There is no shortage of personality here. It will be very interesting to see where the Vittorio Moretti, named after the estate’s owner, goes from here. The Vittorio Moretti is roughly equal parts Chardonnay and Pinot Noir.
