This area has been dedicated to producing wine for millennia and Ghiaccio Forte strives to embody the best traditions of the past, as well as the future of Morellino di Scansano. The name of this wine derives from an ancient fortified Etruscan settlement five minutes from the cellar and translates as ‘ice fort’. The grapes are harvested by hand at the point of optimal ripeness, followed by careful selection and destemming. Fermentation is in stainless steel tanks with around two weeks of skin contact. The resulting wine is powerful yet silky, translucent in colour, and bears the hallmark traits of a grand Sangiovese from Scansano. Combining freshness and structure with a notable maritime influence, elegant cherry fruit and a savory element give a perfect balance between earthiness and ripe red fruits.
