The Grand Duke of Tuscany named "Morellino" his vine that gave birth to a black grape. The name comes from the dark cloak, "morello", the breed of Maremma horses that were used to pull carriages. The grapes of Sangiovese, that in Scansano is called just "Morellino", are the soul of a wine that makes international reputation in this area.
Estatatura (summering) was the name given to the Summer migration of public offices from the city of Grosseto to the hills of Scansano seeking “fresch air”. Made solely from Sangiovese grapes, Estatatura is the Riserva from Poderi di Ghiaccioforte. Ruby red with slight hints of violets, it offers scents of blackberries, raspberries, wild cherries and herbs; on the palate it is broad and mellow.
