Description

Morellino di Scansano mon amour

It was in 1892, when the Ministry of Agriculture assigned the first major award to Fattoria dei Barbi, the first company to export Brunello di Montalcino to Europe, Asia and America. The estate today works under the watchful eye of Stefano Cinelli Colombini, custodian of a long family tradition but always with an eye to progress and innovation and with venerable attention to the grapes of the territory. In particular, in the Maremma in Scansano, the Sangiovese of Fattoria dei Barbi contributes to masterfully enrich the DOCG Morellino di Scansano with a low annual production of 50 hectoliters per hectare. It grows on vineyards located on the hills at 250 meters above sea level in view of the Tyrrhenian Sea and is therefore ventilated by sea breezes at night and warmed by the hot sun during the day.

Sangiovese grapes and the small percentage of Merlot first refine in steel and then in French oak barrels of different sizes, to give us a bright ruby red colour with reflections tending to garnet. The aromas of cherry jam, wild berries, slightly withered flowers, mown grass and spices are released intense and well blended. At the sip it is full, round, harmonious, it has a long and pleasant persistence. The noble tannins envelop the palate as velvet.

We recommend it with pappardelle with wild boar ragout and aged hard cheeses.
