MORELLINO DI SCANSANO
2015 Heba Fattoria di Magliano
|Sub-district||Morellino di Scansano|
This Italian red is one of my favourites: a thyme-scented sangiovese from coastal Tuscany that tastes of stewed damsons and has the colour to match. (from a piece extolling the virtues of drinking half-bottles). Victoria Moore, The Daily Telegraph (Oct 2017)
*Case price: Mix any 12 bottles of wine or 6 bottles of Champagne, Spirits or Fortified to get the 'case price' for each bottle.
Blackberry and black cherry fruit, nice purity, directness. Ripe with lovely bright fruit palate, cherry, blackberry and plum fruit, silky, sleek and immediate. L&S(Apr 2017)
This is Fattoria di Magliano's flagship wine. The 2015 Morellino di Scansano Heba (95% Sangiovese with 5% Syrah) flows forth with bright cherry and wild berry aromas. This wine is fermented in stainless steel and aged in cement vats to preserve the brightness and the integrity of the primary fruit. In this warm vintage, that primary fruit is naturally bold, ripe and dark in color and concentration. Some 110,000 bottles were produced.

Fattoria di Magliano
Nestled in the hilly Italian countryside of Maremma Toscana with its vineyards descending towards the Thyrrhenian Sea from a height of 300m, The vineyards here offer some of the best views we know of the Tuscan coastline. La Fattoria di Magliano was set up in 1996 by Agostino Lenci. Agostino, fascinated by the history of the region and its centuries old wine-making traditions, sees his job and duty to safeguard nature – both wild and agricultural. Minimum intervention and limited development makes for wonderfully healthy vines and truly characterful wines.
Twenty years on these beautiful vineyards are maturing and producing the best fruit of their lives, vine age and bio-dynamic practices means these wines now really are better than ever since the first harvest in 2003. And we should not forget that even when young these vineyards were producing wonderful fruit - the 2004 Poggio Bestiale was rated Italy's best Tuscan wine under £20 in Decanter magazine – quite an achievement for a wine with such a short history. The soil here is sandy with a good amount of clay, which combined with a good dose of sunshine and sea breeze, results in some really beautiful wines – full-flavoured, rippley rich but with a dynamic twang of acidity and pep that makes them just so drinkable.
