Fattoria Dei Barbi Morellino di Scansano

External Review by Great Wines Direct:

Warm palate with round tannins, fresh and vibrant with a touch of green tobacco in the finish.Morellino di Scansano comes from the southern part of Tuscany and it is made mostly with Sangiovese, which is locally called Morellino . The vineyards are located on a hill at 250 metres on the sea level not far from the Tyrrhenian sea, with a very particular micro climate: long, sunny and bright days, cooler nights freshened by the sea breeze. All these factors contribute to a well structured and balanced wine with soft tannins and a very lively acidity. Even if the making of Morellino goes back for centuries its approach is very modern and pleasantGrapes: 100% SangioveseRegion: Italy / Tuscany / ScansanoMaker: Stefano ColombiniNotes: Ruby red with purple hues, with red berries, cherry, scents of myrtle and Mediterranean scrub. Warm palate with round tannins, fresh and vibrant with a touch of green tobacco in the finish.Serve: At 16-18c with roasted and grilled meats, for the traditional wild boar casserole dish and for seasoned cheeses. ABV: 13%
