It covers an area of 8 hectares among rolling hills. Currently 2 hectares host vineyards that give one of the best Morellino di Scansano DOCG of this area, a Rosso Toscano and a Bianco Toscano DOC.
The property is fitted with a cellar of 40 sqm with all the equipments to produce wine. Moreover, an Enterprise Improvement Project (PMA in Italian) - already submitted and approved - would make possible to create a second cellar of 110 sqm that could handle the entire wine - producing process, from vinification through to storage, bottling and labeling.
The working farm is known not only for the excellence of its wine, but also for the production of its delicious oil, obtained thanks to the 460 olive trees. On the most panoramic part of the property it was realized a beautiful stone farmhouse surrounded by a well-kept garden with swimming pool, well and an automatic sprinkler system. The farmhouse, where the owner currently live, can easily be used as an holiday home thanks to its wide dimensions, the position and the privacy that it enjoys.
2 of the 8 hectares of land are destined for vineyards, split in ha 1.42 of Morellino di Scansano DOCG, ha 0.35 of Bianco Toscano DOC, ha 0.22 of IGT Rosso Toscano (Merlot e Cabernet S). The vineyard’s exposure is south-east, in a well aired and sunny position.
The olive trees of the working farm are about 460 personally handled by the current owner without chemical fertilizers. The cultivars of the olive grove are the classic Tuscan: moraiolo, leccino, frantoiano and pendolino. The oil quality is extravirgin with an acidity of 0.4 very good in terms of quality and conservation. The olives are harvested when they are still green to guarantee the oil a fruit green taste with bitter and spicy flavour typical of Tuscan oil. After 4-5 months, the bitter and fruity tones are lost with the natural sedimentation, leaving the place to those more sweet and delicate.
MORELLINO DI SCANSANO WINE
Morellino di Scansano is a DOCG wine that has taken root in the Maremma, in the south of Tuscany, precisely in the municipality of Scansano. The grape is cultivated on rolling hills not far from the sea, characterized by an acid and alkaline soil rich in marine sediments. The vineyards of this area enjoy a favourable exposure, aired and sunny, thanks to they produce exceptional wines with an intense ruby colour tending to garnet with aging. The soul of Morellino is Sangiovese: the production disciplinary foresees a minimum presence of 85%. Morellino di Scansano is one of the great red wines of our country, obtained from Sangiovese and other red grapes: nowadays one of the major protagonists of Italian enology.
The "Morellino di Scansano DOCG" vineyard of Wine and Oil Estate Morellino di Scansano were planted partly in 1968 and partly in 2003. “The old vineyard makes good wine” is not just a saying: scientific data have in fact shown that the old plants give a grape in which the metabolites, anthocyanins, flavones, flavonoids, which make the wine a cure-all are more concentrated. In addition, the roots in depth guarantee the plants greater resistance to water stress: this allow them to survive the most adverse climatic conditions and guarantees a product of constant quality even in the most critical years.
