Tasting Notes

This wine comes from various estate vineyards all enjoying south or south-eastern exposures. 90% Sangiovese is blended with 5% Cabernet and 5% Merlot. Densely planted to 5600 plants per hectare, the vines grow in sandy limestone-rich soils. The grapes are macerated for over a week and vinified in steel or concrete vats. Deep red ruby with fresh fruit, mineral and floral aromas. Red berry fruits dominate the palate with well-integrated acidity and tannins. Beautifully balanced.

The Producer

Badia di Morrona

Badia di Morrona is located in the centre of Colline Pisane and it is one of the four abbeys founded by Counts of Fucecchio. The abbey - with origins going back 1000 A.D. - was the seat of a convent of Benedictine monks, who always produced wine. The unique structure of the vineyards - basically clay rich in fossils and also including sandy and mineral soils - is reflected in the unique taste and style of their wines. Over the years, quality has been supported by technology innovation, preserving all traditional production methods, with a particular eye to the characteristics of the terroir. With this purpose in mind, a new Cellar has been built, to amplify the quality increase of the wines, through careful and rational vinification of different grapes produced by Badia di Morrona vineyards.
