Wine list Morellino di Scansano
Wine description

This wine is produced in Maremma, in the south of Tuscany. It is composed by Sangiovese, called here Morellino, and 15% Merlot. The vineyards are cultivated on a hill with 250 meters elevation and located   near the sea (Mar Tirreno), that contributes to create a perfect micro-climate with warm days and fresh nights. This product is structured, balanced, with soft tannins joined to a vivid sourness. Although the ancient origins, its taste is modern and enchanting. As we said before, this wine is a blend of Morellino and 15% Merlot. During the wine-making, the soft pressed grapes are cooled at 16°C. This cooling-process is useful to extract from the peels polyphenols and anthocyanins and to stabilise the colour. The classic alcoholic fermentation follows with its 12/13 days at a controlled temperature of 29°C. The aging of 6 months is developed in steel containers and, in part, in wooden barrels (small-medium).
