SCANSANO, TUSCANY, ITALY
Originating in Pistoia, the family moved to Scansano in the 1860s where they were pruners. In 1960 they started laying the foundation of the current company by planting the first four hectares. They are now the 'Ambassadors of Morellino' and do wonders with promoting this lesser known region.
Morellino is the name for Sangiovese in the Maremma region of Tuscany and this estate is owned by two brothers. It has lovely cherry fruit and then a herby note...
