Morellino di Scansano DOCG
Inland of the “Costa D’Argento” facing the Argentario promontory and the Talamone promontory at about 200 meters above sea level, the “Spiaggiole” vineyard is situated on the very first hills overlooking one of the most beautiful seaside spots of the Maremma coast. The generous, deep, medium-textured soil gives structure and fruit to this wine, a typical expression of this Morellino di Scansano DOCG area.
