Rounded with lively minerality & fresh citrus
Tasting Notes: Straw yellow with green highlights, on the nose it bestows elegant aromatic notes of herbs and flowers on a fruity background. On the palate it is medium structured, dry, rightly round, with a lively minerality and a citrusy freshness that make drinking it even more pleasant. The enduring finish, is characterised by citrus nuances.
Viognier is best drank when young, within 2 years from its vintage.
The Vignaioli del Morellino di Scansano winery was founded in 1972, when a small group of producers from Scansano decided to join their forces to produce wine together. The group quickly grew larger and in the Eighties they took an important decision: while other cooperatives decided to focus on quantity, we took the harder road, the road of quality. This required significant investments on behalf of our members and a huge effort in the vineyard. Not everyone decided to stay, but those who did were especially motivated.
A few decades later, their sacrifices have been rewarded. Guided by president Benedetto Grechi, who guaranteed continuity in the mission of this winery for over 30 years, we can now count on some 700 hectares of vineyards spreading mostly in the area of Scansano, Magliano in Toscana and Pitigliano totalling around 170 members. The production is always focused on high quality wine. Over the years, we have reinforced our presence in the Tuscan market, and then on a national scale. Todoay our goal is to continue to focus on quality and in coherence with this mission, we’ve developed our presence in the HoReCa channel, both in Italy and abroad. This we’ve done with the support of our director Sergio Bucci who since 2010 has been essential to promote new opportunities and help all our members to spread the magic of Morellino di Scansano and its territory all around the world.
