The result is a Morellino di Scansano "old style", with the great and subtle elegance of Tuscany of great interest.
Clear ruby in the glass, opens on tones ethereal, almost waxy, sweet and intriguing.
Then come fresh red fruits like cherry, undergrowth and the breeding characteristic of Sangiovese of Toscana.
In the mouth is ... to drink a bucket.
Fresh on the 18th denotes a good acidity well integrated, a distinct taste and a big nose mouth correspondence.
Tannin in mind, silky.
It leaves your mouth perfectly clean.
This Morellino di Scansano is taking out the class of traditional grape varieties and wine making.
Absolutely wonderful blend classic
