Val delle Rose 2017 Morellino di Scansano
Morellino is the local name in this part of the Tuscan coast for Sangiovese. Val delle Rose is produced by Andrea Cecchi and he makes superb value wines which reflect the local terroir and the grape variety. We at Noble Grape are big fams of the Chiantis produced by Cecchi so our interest was piqued by this wine which is a slightly different expression. Warmer and riper in style with lower acidity but with vibrant black cherry fruit with added notes of victoria plums, sandalwood, tanned leather and subtle spices. A great value wine from a great producer.
Val delle Rose is owned by Famiglia Cecchi one of Tuscany's most famous family owned wineries. Cecchi was founded in 1893 but has owned this estate since 1966. Cecchi owns a number of other wineries in Tuscany and Umbria including Villa Cerna, Monte Guelfo and Castello di Montaùto.
The vineyard is located in the hamlet of Poggio La Mozza a few KMs south-east of Grosseto in the Maremma region of Tuscany, just 20KM from the coast. Here the climate is much more Mediterranean than the central part of Tuscany where Chianti and Brunello are grown. The wines here are softer and plusher, quite often having an international influence to the wines, but not here at Val delle Rose: these are properly authentic Tuscan wines.
One of Tuscany's great under-the-radar bargains that offers something a litle different to Chianti. Morellino is juicy and ripe, but a thoroughly authentic Tuscan red
