The Poggio alle Sughere estate in Magliano in Toscana - in the heart of the Maremma zone - produces Morellino di Scansano with a blend of Sangiovese (90%) and Cabernet Sauvignon (10%). This warm environment with perfect rainfall means that Morellino di Scansano is a very pleasant and agreeable, harmonious and elegant wine, with impressive and persistent perfumes accompanied by hints of violets, raspberries and pomegranate. This wine is refined for eight months in small barrels and then four months in the bottle. Thanks to these characteristics, this wine is an ideal accompaniment for cured meats, pasta and rice, grilled beef and cheese. As enjoyable in Winter as on warm Summer evenings.

Wine Enthusiast"Best Buy" Genuine and straightforward, this is the kind of hearty Tuscan red you'll want to pair with grilled steak or lamb. The wine is redolent of luscious red fruit tones with soft shadings of oak toast and spice in the mouth.

Wine SpectatorSome ripe forest fruit character, on a medium body, with some fruit, but slightly disjointed and earthy on the finish. Drink now. 2,700 cases made.
