The soul of the Morellino di Scansano is represented by the Sangiovese grape - locally called morellino - that is able to express special velvety qualities in this part of Tuscany. Doga delle Clavule has an excellent position for vine growing. The estate spreads out over a hilly region, and soils are mainly sedimentary with some examples of neo-native loose soil, deriving from marine deposits of Pliocene origin. The proximity of Mount Amiata creates perfect climatic conditions: vineyards are protected from cold north winds and mitigated by sea breezes. This also reduces to a minimum the possibility of disease to the vine.
The 2013 Doga Delle Clavule Morellino di Scansano DOCG begins with a very pleasing aroma of dark fruit, spice, coffee, tobacco and plenty of licorice. Taking a sip reveals a tart and tasty medium-bodied wine with great balance and plenty of savory fruit. Licorice, vanilla and lots of other interesting touches lead into the dry, long, grippy finish. This is a really smooth and delicious expression of Sangiovese. Bulk Buy!
