Moretti Omero Terre di Giano 2010

2011-12-12 17.38.50


I describe this wine as deliciously rustic.  That's about the best reduction of how this wine tastes that I can really put together.

This is a blend of: 50% Ciliegiolo, 25% Sangiovese, 25% Merlot. 

Moretti Omero's organic Umbrian blend manages to combine lush texture, and juicy black cherry fruit with undertones of pepper and wild herbs and a slightly chewy character.  It's totally approachable and easy to drink, very expressive, and over flowing with aromas of violets, cherries, and plummy fruit.

Moretti Omero produced about 800 cases of this.  I got 17.

This is available for about $17 at the Freeport Cheese and Wine Shop, Black Cherry Provisions, Vic and Whit's, Cinque Terre, and the Blue Hill Wine Shop.
