The 2009 Avvoltore is one of the most refined, elegant wines I have ever tasted from Morisfarms. Sweet, silky tannins frame a core of super-expressive black fruit. The wine flows across the palate gracefully yet there is plenty of underlying structure. This is a fabulous, sleek Avvoltore that is sure to find many fans. Stylistically the 2009 is quite ripe and radiant, but it doesn’t have the heft or weight of a truly opulent year. The wine can be enjoyed now or cellared for at least a handful of years. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2024.
