Vermentino Toscana is a rich and luminous straw yellow. The bouquet is characterised by floral and fruity notes enriched by charming mineral nuances. On the palate it is clearly fresh and mineral, very pleasant to drink and filled with character, with intense fruity notes among which the citruses stand out. Of good structure. Persistent finish, coherent with notes perceived on the nose.

Food pairing: Vermentino Toscano Igt is suitable for various pairings, from fish starters to pasta dishes, to fish or white meat main dishes.

A floral and mineral Vermentino Toscana, a neat and fresh palate, a perfect match with seafood-based dishes and white meat.

The vines are 5-10 years old, grown on a sandy soil, rich of silt, at an altitude 150 mt above sea level.

Harvest: InSeptember and preservation of the grapes with carbonic snow. Low temperature pressing in inert atmosphere; fermentation of the prime must at controlled temperature; free-run must fermentation at controlled temperature (max 16°C). No malolactic fermentation. Maturation: in stainless steel tanks for 3 months on fine lees. Refining: starting from January of the following year. Ageing potential: Vermentino is best drank when young, 1-2 years after its vintage.

Cantina Vignaioli Scansano

Cantina Vignaioli del Morellino di Scansano was born in Scansano, in the province of Grosseto, in 1972 and today has 170 members. Our winery’s production is focused on Morellino di Scansano, the most typical wine in the Maremma Toscana region. Thanks to the 700 hectares of vineyards that belong to our members, we can offer multiple facets of Morellino, a proof of its versatility.

“For us it’s essential that all our members take part in the process, that they feel part of a large team. Over the past few years, our members have adopted strict rules so as to improve the quality of our wines starting from the vineyard. This has increased each one’s participation.

We’re also proud to have many young people among our membrs. Some have followed their parents’ steps, some have gone back to farming. This makes us proud: it shows our mission of supporting our territory through our work is accomplished. But then, of course, there’s always space for improvement.”

PEF certification: the first in Italy

In July 2018 we received the PEF certification from the European Union, the first EU certification measuring the enfironmental footprint along the entire supply chain, from the vineyard to the disposal of the packaging. An important result that is part of our long term commitment towards environmental sustainabiliy

maremma

The area of Maremma (the name coming from Maretima, that is to say close to the sea) is a large area on the coast of Tuscany and Northern Latium. It goes from the province of Livorno and Pisa (Alta Maremma), has its central and main part in the province of Grosseto (called Maremma Grossetana or simply Maremma, where Scansano is also located), and then continues south, to inlcude Maremma Laziale, north of Civitavecchia.

Maremma has the charm of a place of discovery and conquest, a place that has been spared by the extensive urbanisation that is characterising many other agricultural territories. The poverty that characterised this area until the Fifties – when reclamation of the land was finally completed and Maremma stopped being a land of poverty and emigration with its swamplands close to the sea – has led to a still untouched countryside that spreads in front of your enchanted eyes. Indeed, until relatively recently, the Maremma region was divided into a coastal area with swamplands and a hilly and drier area inland, with small villages such as Scansano on the hilltops.
