Morellino di Scansano is a grape grown in Maremma, the coastal area of Tuscany. It is actually the local name for Sangiovese and is usually blended with Malvasia Nera and Alicante. Dense purple in colour, this wine has a cedary, cherry nose backed by oak spice. It is medium-bodied and dry, with a well-extracted cherry flavour and chewy tannins on the finish. A great match for spaghetti bolognaise.
Clear medium-deep pink tinged with copper. Medium strength nose showing strawberry, apple and orange. On the palate, medium-bodied, tasting like strawberry yoghurt with some mango coulis. Delicious with a BLT sandwich on the deck. Drink up.
A field blend with mostly Friulano and some Ribolla Gialla, Malvasia Istriana and Picolit. Opulent with zesty lemon, red apple and lanolin notes mixed with a nice touch of honey. Soft acid but the salty tang and pleasant bitterness that lingxfers on the finish keep the wine in harmony. This wine has been highly acclaimed since its first conception in 1991 and its easy to see why. A wine meant for gastronomy. Seafood risotto would be perfect.
Salty and savoury with penetrating flavours of stone fruit, citrus and a pleasant bitterness. A full mouth-feel, long and persistent with a linear core.
Quite complex with depth and layers of penetrating flavours, minerally with mouth-watering acidity, a ripe and rich slightly honeyed texture. Well done for its style.
Crisp and fresh with lemon citrus, mineral, soft acidity. Clean and pleasant, easy without being simplistic. Grown on volcanic soils from 35 year old vines at an elevation of 220 metres. Ideal as an aperitif wine and with light, fresh dishes.
A blend of Pinot Bianco, Tocai Friulano and Ribolla Gialla). Bright, deep straw in colour with a yellow apple nose and a thread of minerality; medium-bodied, dry, stony, apple and lemon flavours with a mineral finish and a touch of almond nut finish. Full in the mouth and well-balanced.
