Plum and blackberry coat the plump nose, backed by ripe black fruit that registers as pure but standard. Still fairly tight and tannic, and not showing any signs of maturity as of now. Potent and tight, with lots of oak and chocolate on the finish.
A small percentage of Cabernet Sauvignon is added to this luminous Morellino to give it added strength and intensity. However, the wine’s Sangiovese core shines through with delicate aromas of sweet almond, blueberry and violets.
This ripe Morellino di Scansano offers deep tones of toasted almond, spice and popcorn. There is juicy fruit in there, too, like cherry and blueberry, and the wine benefits from dense tannins and a chewy finish.
Genuine and straightforward, this is the kind of hearty Tuscan red you’ll want to pair with grilled steak or lamb. The wine is redolent of luscious red fruit tones with soft shadings of oak toast and spice in the mouth.
This 70-30 blend of Sangiovese and Merlot-Alicante is a third cousin to the estate’s top wine Splendido (a similar blend of grapes made in a more sophisticated manner). This is a well-priced version that is simple and clean with bursting flavors of red fruit and cherry.
This informal Sangiovese-based red wine (in a screwcap bottle) shows bright berry nuances of cassis, cranberry and forest fruit. The wine finishes in an easy-drinking but crisp style.
