Available for:
Brilliant red with light ruby reflections. The smell is intense, with important scents of red fruit, in particular blueberries and freshly picked cherry. On the palate the wine is silky, fresh, with a light aromatic persistence.The tannins are very present but well balanced. Perfect with sauce based first courses, even more elaborated ones and second courses typical of Maremma cuisine. At a 18°C temperature it is very good as an appetizer companion.

The 2018 Morellino di Scansano shows nice freshness and very decisive primary fruit. It is a sharp and zippy Morellino, carrying some tones of bitter almond and candied orange peel at the back of forest berry and wild cherry. The blend is 85% Sangiovese, 10% Alicante and 5% Ciliegiolo. This is an easy-drinking red that would feel right at home next to a cheesy baked eggplant dish.

This is rich and full of cherry, dark plum and earth flavors. The juicy texture keeps all the elements lively and moderately long. Sangiovese, Alicante and Malvasia Nera. Drink now. 15,000 cases made, 1,500 cases imported.

The 2018 Morellino di Scansano is fresh, bright and absolutely delicious. Sweet red cherry, spice, cedar, mint and tobacco all jump out of the glass in a fresh, vibrant Morellino that offers tons of character, depth and personality. Aging in steel keeps the flavors bright.
