"Scantianum" Sangiovese Toscana IGT - Vignaioli di Scansano

Once in a while, a nice honest and sincere red that does not require years of aging in the cellar to be enjoyable. On the contrary, this 100% Sangiovese offered by Vignaioli del Morellino is a wine that lends itself perfectly to being enjoyed immediately, within two or three years of the harvest. Aged in stainless steel and bottled as early as the spring after the harvest, this wine is perfect to start a dinner with friends. Maybe a barbecue, with as an appetizer a nice slice of old-fashioned salami. Here, with that preparatory salami, this is the perfect wine. In the glass it has a beautiful deep ruby red color, with intense and pleasant aromas reminiscent of wine that has just been made (experts would define them as "winey"). Fresh fruit notes, with plums, blueberries and blackberries. In the background, a pleasant presence of sweet spices. On the palate, it is juicy and moderately structured. Dry, though appropriately soft, it is a well-balanced wine in all its aspects. The finish, decidedly long, guarantees an equally long pleasure.

Another cooperative winery capable of offering excellent wines, often characterized by a really interesting quality/price ratio. This time the location is Tuscany, in the heart of Maremma, far, but not very far, from the coast but especially from Montalcino, Montepulciano and Florence with its Chianti. The winery in question is the Vignaioli del Morellino di Scansano, founded in 1972, and today consisting of about 170 members. Vineyards split among hundreds of different plots, scattered on the hills surrounding the village. We're talking about 720 acres, not exactly a backyard. The production focuses mainly on Morellino, as is normal, offered in different versions, but not only. The secret of the good results achieved by the winery is easy to tell. The great quality of all the wines is ensured by the small size of each vineyard, which is followed by the appointed member with care and attention to all details. As if it were a personal garden.
