Grillesino Morellino di Scansano 2012
Wine info as displayed in Italian on the front label (and translated here): "Produced from pure sangiovese grapes, the wine is aged in stainless steel to skip its typical fruity component. Ruby red in color, it is characterized by floral notes of violets and small red fruits."
100% Sangiovese. Grillesino, located in the municipality of Magliano in Toscana, is named after the Grillese river that flows through the estate. The estate spreads out to around 99 acres with a total production of 220,000 bottles per year. Their production focuses on sangiovese, cabernet sauvignon, and cilegiolo for their red wines and pinot blanc and viognier for their white wines. Since 1999, Grillesino has been owned by Compagnia del Vino.
