Tasting Notes

Brilliant ruby-red colour. Intense aromas of ripe red fruit. Smooth and full-bodied with a long lasting finish. This versatile red wine is a splendid companion for spicier dishes, all types of grilled, roasted and barbecued red meats and hearty stews.

Producer's Notes

90% Sangiovese (aka “morellino”), 5% Cabernet Sauvignon, 5% Merlot

In local dialect, Sangiovese has long been known as “morellino,” a reference to “morello,” a breed of horse formerly used to work on farms in this coastal area of Tuscany. Farmers compared the rich dark colour of the Sangiovese grape to the glossy, dark coats of the morello horses.

Selected grapes are harvested at the peak of their ripeness and then vinified employing the most advanced technology available. The wine is ready for bottling in the spring immediately following the vintage. Because of the maturity of the grapes, this is an especially smooth wine that retains its depth of fruit over an extended period of time.

Reviews & Accolades

88 points: The 2010 Morellino di Scansano emerges from the glass with sweet red cherries, licorice, tobacco, leather and spices. It is a juicy, generous wine to drink over the next few years. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2014. (Antonio Galloni, The Wine Advocate, June 2012)
