Produced in the rolling Tuscan hills and aged for 10-12 months in French oak barrels, this wine is rich in both its color and flavor. With notes of sour berries and toasted earth, it is warming yet holds a refreshing finish. The 2017 Morellino di Scansano is one for those who like their wine silky and smooth. DOCG (Denominazione di Origine Controllata e Garantita) is the highest quality level of Italian wines, so you can be certain this wine won’t disappoint. What’s more, this is an award-winning wine.
The delightful red was awarded 90 pts with the Wine Spectator, impressing critics and connoisseurs alike, so we’re pretty sure you’ll be left impressed too. With lower than average rainfall in autumn and winter and a light sea breeze, wines produced in this hillside location at the Vittico vineyard are known for their distinct aroma. This is due to the unique microclimate in which the grapes are grown. The result? An exquisite red that’s just right for everyday occasions, but just as special for the celebratory birthday dinner. Morellino di Scansano can be aged in your wine cellar for up to eight years.
