Antonio Sanguineti, Morellino di Scansano DOC
(mor-ay-LEE-no dee skahn-SAH-no)

 

Tasting Notes: Antonio Sanguineti has a flair for making classic wines that appeal on all levels. He respects tradition, but always adds his own touch, making rich, enjoyable wines that his father’s generation, or his son’s, would enjoy. His Morellino bursts with sun-bright fruit, fresh cracked pepper, sage, and ocean brine. Its taut structure supports a long, slightly smoky finish; and it’s perfect with fish, tomatoes, even spicy chorizo. A great alternative to Chianti, it is a good value for such a serious wine.
