Fattoria dei Barbi Morellino di Scansano 2011 750ml

Fattoria dei Barbi Morellino di Scansano

Ruby-red color with purple hues. Red berries, cherries, myrtle and notes of Mediterranean shrub. The palate is warm with soft, round tannins, fresh acidity and a touch of tobacco on the long finish.

This red wine comes from the southern part of Tuscany and it is made mostly with Sangiovese , which locally is called “Morellino”, and 15% Merlot. 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 pleasant .

In 1997, Stefano Cinelli Colombini purchased an estate in Scansano, in Tuscany’s Maremma area, near the Tyrrhenian Sea coast, now called Vivaio dei Barbi. This 28-hectare (69-acre) property is planted to 20 hectares (50 acres) of which 16 hectares (40 acres) are Sangiovese and 4 hectares (10 acres) are Merlot. The estate sits on a hill, rising to 250 meters and enjoys a Mediterranean climate with long, sunny, bright days mitigated by cooler nights refreshed by the sea breeze. Soils here are stony and mixed with sand. Sangiovese from Maremma, locally called Morellino, tends to give wines that are well structured and balanced with soft tannins and lower acidity levels than in Montalcino.
