THE REVIEW

Morellino is the best kept secret for all you Chianti, Brunello and Super-Tuscan fans. This Sangiovese stunner should be enjoyed all year round with grilled meats, pasta of any kind and of course, homemade pizza!
    Morellino is the local name given to the Sangiovese grape grown in the hilly Tuscan village of Scansano. What separates this wine from others is its rich Brunello-like style, the nuance of a Super-Tuscan, and the wonderful acidity of a Chianti. The icing on the cake is that Morellinos don't cost nearly as much as these more famous cousins.
    A truly versatile Tuscan red, Col di Bacche has ripe blackberry and mineral notes with a nose of violets and dark berries. It is full-bodied and well structured, intense, and quite elegant all at the same time. Rich, with a hint of dark chocolate, creme-de-mure, cassis, plum, cherry and black raspberry, it offers great mineral notes and a long, silky smooth finish.
    This is a terrific expression of a great value out of Tuscany and a wine you'll want in your cellar for everyday enjoyment and alongside many types of cuisine. For our homemade pizza suggestion: add a dash of fresh ricotta to your margherita pie and drizzle with truffle oil. Wow!Read More »
