The Mori Family winery has stood the test of time. WWII nearly ended its historical run, but post-war they helped supply a struggling Italy with olive oil and wine in a time of need. They're farmers at heart and have been making olive oil, cereals, and wine since the 1700s.
Tasting notes: Dark cherry, tobacco, licorice, and rose petal.
