PRODUCT OVERVIEW:
Wines that smash the price-to-quality ratio are sometimes found in places that lie in the shadows of their more well-known, prestigious neighbors. Such is the case with today's fabulous Morellino di Scansano. Head south to the vineyards surrounding the village of Scansano in the coastal region of Maremma and the DOC of Morellino di Scansano, which is named after the village and the local Sangiovese clone. 

Maremma benefits from volcanic soil and hot, dry daytime weather balanced out by sea breezes that elicit significant swings in day-to-night temperatures. This variation enables grapes to develop an ideal balance between ripe fruit characters and acidity. And that volcanic soil? It makes its mark on the wines, providing the ideal complementary flavors to the native Sangiovese grape. Although the region gained notoriety with the creation of Super Tuscan wines in nearby Bolgheri, wines with the Morello di Scansano designation are still uncharted territory for many American consumers of Italian wine. That's good for YOU, though, as these wines out-perform their price points (especially when you buy them at Bin Ends!).

Today's wine is an absolute stunner. Ripe red- and blackberries jump from the glass. The palate is medium-to-full-bodied and silky-smooth, with flavors of brambly blackberries, black raspberries, black cherries, and plums layered with accents of savory herbs, tobacco, and leather. The wine finishes long and begs you to take another sip.
