Morellino di Scansano best interprets the flavourful essence of the Rossi di Maremma.

Tasting notes Cecchi was one of the pioneer of the Maremma, and this wine reflects this entire sunny land. Il Morellino di Scansano Cecchi is produced with a blend composed predominantly of Sangiovese with other grapes permitted in the area. La Mora is refined into steel for a few months before bottling. Red ruby very intense with evident purple reflections, it has a typical fruity aroma. In the palate it is soft, with a good persistence.
Serve with roasts and pasta
