    "Al Al" Toscana IGT Passito
  • Alì Alè is a 'niche' Tuscan passito, since a maximum of 1000 0.375 cl bottles are produced annually. The curious name derives from the union of the two grape varieties that make it up: Alicante and Aleatico. A marriage destined to give life to a high quality product. The idea of creating this passito came from Ezio Mantellassi, founder of Fattoria Mantellassi, who planted the first rows of Aleatico in 1960. It was then oenologist Marco Stefanini, at the suggestion of Aleardo Mantellassi, who proposed vinifying the Alicante and Aleatico grapes together, resulting in this unique wine. The grapes come from hilly vineyards located in the Tuscan Maremma, characterised by tufaceous limestone soil that gives the wine minerality and structure. The healthiest bunches are harvested by hand and left to dry for about 70 days in crates, in a ventilated place protected from the sun. The entire vinification process is painstaking, from the removal of the stalks to the pressing. The wine then matures in small oak barrels for several months. The nose has particularly intense and pleasant aromas of red fruit, with notes of jam, chocolate and spices. In the mouth, however, it is sweet and nuanced, with a persistent and harmonious finish. Alì Alè is a meditation wine, perfect to accompany chocolate or dried fruit desserts. An excellent gift for lovers of dessert wines and niche products.

    Fattoria Mantellassi: Ambassadors of Morellino. What more can you add? 'Fattoria Mantellassi,' we read on the company's website, 'made a decisive contribution to the establishment of the Denominazione di Origine Controllata of Morellino di Scansano in 1978 and is considered one of the most prestigious producers. Hailing from Pistoia, the Mantellassi family moved to the Scansano and Magliano area around 1860 to ply their trade as 'potini' and 'grafters'. The planting of the first vineyards dates back to a century later, in 1960, when the first four hectares were established at Banditaccia. Today, the Fattoria can count on about one hundred hectares under vine on some of its many hillsides. Here Sangiovese is the absolute protagonist. And with it grape varieties such as Alicante, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Canaiolo Nero, Malvasia Nera, Ciliegiolo, and the 'whites' Vermentino and Sauvignon. The Mantellassi Winery, on the other hand, is located in a strategic position, a few kilometres from Magliano in Toscana and close to each of the vineyards. This makes it possible, during the harvest period, to optimise work and have the grapes in the cellar very quickly, preserving all their best characteristics.
