  • Morellino Di Scansano DOCG Riserva

    £153.30 inc. Vat

    This DOCG red is a hidden jewel from the Tuscany region.  Made from 90% Sangiovese grapes and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon, the combination results in a wine that delivers the great expression of a ripe Sangiovese grape with scents of marasca cherry and aromatic hints  that reminds one of the Mediterranean brushwood.  Elegant and silky, medium to full body, it’s fresh but fully ready to enjoy with lovely ripe tannins. This wine will easily age for several years, softening the tannins and bringing out more of the earthiness.

    Pairing: typical Tuscan pasta-based dishes, red meat or game as well as aged cheeses and mustards.

    14% ABV
