Mazzei Bronzone Morellino di Scansano Riserva SOCG

2013

In a Nutshell

Ripe and mouthwatering Morellino di Scansano.

Tasting Notes

Bright garnet in colour, this wine has great depth of opulent cherry fruit. A judicious use of oak adds a spicy vanilla note to the perfume and a richness to the palate. Exceptionally long length with a supple finish.

Producer - Belguardo

Tenuta Belguardo was purchased in the 1990s after the Mazzei family identified the potential for producing quality wines on the estate. In line with their philosophy for innovation, the family implemented an intense re-planting program, carefully selecting grape varieties and clones. In addition to the introduction of international varieties, the family have invested in a research and development project based on an ancient local strain of Sangiovese, found in the oldest vineyards of Scansano, to ensure the best clones are used for production.
