Story of the wine:

Centred on the medieval town of Scansano, south east of the city of Grosseto, this area of Tuscany is called Maremma and was, until the 1980s most famous for breeding cattle – particularly the Maremmana. It’s suitability for vines has been recognised and over the last 20 years there has been a great deal of investment in both vineyards and wineries. Morellino is the local name for the Sangiovese grape. The estate is currently run by two brothers, Aleardo e Giuseppe Mantellassi, and whilst the family had been in the vineyards since the 1860’s it was only in 1960 that the winery was established and now has 95ha of vineyards. Indeed Mantellassi was one of the pioneers of serious wine making in Scansano in the 1980s.

Grape(s): 85% Sangiovese, 15% Ciliegiolo and Cabernet Sauvignon

Area: From the estate at Magliano in Toscana south of Scansano and about 10 kilometres from the coast


From a new region of Tuscany this wine exhibits the versatility and quality of Italy’s top producers. Delicious, softly rounded fruit with a herbal tone on the finish and good length on the palate.

ABV 14.5%
