The Territory. Morellino di Scansano area of production, from the shore of the Tirrenian Sea up to the hills that surround Mount Amiata, is 65.000 ha wide, 1.500 of which are vineyards, and is located in the south-west side of the province of Grosseto (south of Tuscany). The area includes a hilly belt that from north slowly descends southwards to the plane of Albinia and westwards to the Tirrenian shore and the Plane of Grosseto, including the municipalities of Scansano, Grosseto, Magliano in Toscana, Manciano and a part of Campagnatico, Roccalbegna and Semproniano.

In this territory of long history, the tradition of vine growing have ancient roots. A number of archaeological findings dated back to the Etruscan times (5th century a.c.), discovered in the areas of Scansano and Albegna Valley, show that in fact the production of wine was an important activity for the local Etruscan community even then.

The Wine. Morellino di Scansano, DOC since 1978, became DOCG (Designation of Controlled and Guaranteed Origin) in 2007. This was the acknowledgement of three decades of hard work from the wine makers in order to reach excellent qualitative standards during every single step of the process.

There are three styles of Morellino di Scansano: base, riserva and selezione. The Procedural Guidelines imposes Sangiovese as the main grape variety for Morellino di Scansano, which can be integrated with 15% of other grape varieties, the traditional Canaiolo, Ciliegiolo, Malvasia, Colorino, Alicante and most recently also Merlot, Cabernet, Syrah and other internatonal dark-skinned grape varieties.

The base style of Morellino has ruby colour, it’s fruity and winy at the nose, fresh and savory at the palate but also smooth with a little tannin. It’s a fresh wine that can sold the year after the harvest. The riserva style of Morellino di Scansano (two years of ageing) has garnet colour, fruity aroma (cherry, red fruits and plum) and notes of spice and vanilla. The palate is dry, fullbodied, slightly tannic and smooth. There’s also a third style in between base and riserva, also known as selezione, 4 to 12 months of ageing, that has similar characteristics to the riserva.
