Grillesino
We make our Morellino fresh and welcoming, with immediately enjoyable, soft, cherry/ berry Sangiovese fruit. An expressive, attractive nose with black cherry, plum and black fruit aromas, along with a definite vegetal element (green peppers) and some earthy hints. On the palate it immediately tastes rich, ripe black cherry and berry flavors that blend into a pleasant tartness. Tannins are soft at first, then firm up in the lengthy, balanced finish which exudes ample acidity and a final punch of black fruit.

History Morellino” is a grape that is technically a strain of Sangiovese, call it a “kissing cousin”. It is cultivated in the Scansano area, South Tuscany, about 20 miles east of the Tyrrhenian Sea. Legend has it that the grape was given its name because the brown hue of the grapes is similar the color of the Marmmano horses. The long, hot growing seasons that occur in Scansano allow grapes to fully ripen with high sugar levels; and, in turn, produce wines rich in fruit and solid in structure. This has made Morellino di Scansano Tuscany’s best-kept secret.
