The Morellino di Scansano

Born in one of the most unspoilt areas of the Region, the most southern coastal part, known as Maremma Tuscany. Located between the valleys of the river Ombrone and the river Albegna. It includes, in addition to the territory of the municipality of Scansano, also part of the municipalities of Grosseto and Magliano in Toscana towards the Tyrrhenian Sea. Then Campagnatico, Roccalbegna. Semproniano and Manciano towards Monte Amiata and the interior.

The “history” of Morellino is linked to that of the hills in the hinterland of the Maremma that have always been suitable for the cultivation of vines. With a constant and concentrated rainfall, with the hills that allow the warmth of the sea breezes to filter, accompanied by the sun inside the valleys between Ombrone and Albegna, the conditions for the ripening of the grapes are the best.

The ancient origin of the wine of Scansano is confirmed by historical documents of the twelfth century, which cite it for “excellent goodness”.

In 1812, they were produced in the area of Scansano, as many as 5,540 hl of wine of which a classified part of “superior quality”. For a wine experience to remember we invite you to a tasting morellino di scansano and montecucco .
