Badia di Morrona Rosso dei Poggi IGT Toscana
Badia di Morrona Rosso is a lovely soft and smooth Sangiovese led blend from a family winery making excellent value for money wines. Very easy drinking and well suited to food.
Badia di Morrona is a small estate owned by the Gaslini Alberti family, a highly passionate producer focussing on quality. Their holdings are reasonably large by our standards, around 1500 acres with a little under 300 planted with vines, around half being Sangiovese. The rest is olive groves and farmland. They have restored the old farmhouses for guests and have a restaurant and even a monastery dating back to the eleventh century.
Their wines are well made blending both traditional methods and state of the art technology. They are great quality at affordable prices. Their dedication to producing high quality wines is earning them a reputation and they've been hotly tipped as a winery to watch out for in the near future.
This Rosso is a blend of 85% Sangiovese and some unstated grapes, fermented in stainless steel for freshness. It's soft, round and smooth with berry flavours. Very easy drinking and particularly suited to Italian cuisine of course.
