Viticcio Morellino di Scansano DOCG

2015

In a Nutshell

The combination of a hillside location and the sea creates a unique microclimate in this area.

Tasting Notes

Ruby-red in colour, with ethereal notes of sour cherry and ripe fruit with nuances of vanilla and wet earth. On the palate it is rich and savoury, with tannins that fade into a refreshing finish.

Production Notes

Manual harvest beginning in the first week of September for Merlot; last week in September for Sangiovese; and the first week of October for Cabernet Sauvignon. Alcoholic fermentation at 28-30°C in stainless steel, and maceration for 10 days. Malolactic fermentation in stainless steel before aging in barriques of 225 l for 10-12 months and stainless steel for a further 3-5 months.
