Denomination

Morellino di Scansano DOCG

Description

La Torre Morellino di Scansano, produced from Sangiovese grapes with a small amount of Cabernet Sauvignon, boasts a rich ruby-red and fragrances of ripe fruit, in particular dried plum and dark cherry.

Vintage Report

The excellent weather in April and May accelerated the grapevines’ phenological phases, while a particularly hot July helped the fruits’ ripening, which progressed softly throughout the August rains. The lower temperatures in August helped to develop the concentration of substances within the grapes that are necessary to obtain a product with excellent polyphenolic aromas

Tasting Notes

A Morellino in which one can feel the bright and lively Maremma region. Pleasant notes of red fruits such as cherry and strawberry mixed with Tuscan flowers: roses and violets. Mouth-coating, versatile pairings, enjoyable both with delicate or flavourful dishes, perfect with pasta with a ragu meat sauce with a pinch of pepper.

Serving suggestions

Ideal with all dishes featuring poultry or roast rabbit, but enjoy it with meat-sauced pastas too, any meat fried or barbecued, and medium-aged cheeses.
