Sangiovese is the principal grape in this wine, which reflects ripe, fleshy fruit. The vines, at an altitude of 150 meters above sea level, enjoy in this zone an ideal climate, with perfect exposure to the sun balanced by moderating sea breezes. Vinification begins with a cold pre-fermentation maceration followed by fermentation in stainless steel. This is followed by a minimum of 12 months of aging in barriques. Val delle Rose Morellino di Scansano is intense ruby red in color; a bouquet of ripe fruit typical of Sangiovese di Maremma. Well structured and full bodied.
