Here is what you will live

Welcome to the land of Scansano, renowned for its wine as long ago as the early 1800s when the Napoleonic army decided to make a garrison there for the troops marching to Rome, which was then governed by the Vatican. 

The Sangiovese grape which in Scansano is called “Morellino” had been found in this area for some time but it came into its own during the alongside the new winegrowing boom, to the extent that Barone Ricasoli – who hunted in this area – remarked on the quality of the Maremman vines. When the specifications for Chianti wine were drawn up he wanted Scansano grafts on the rootstocks to invigorate the vineyards of the more noble Chianti farms.

In this amazing context you'll find the interesting Winery of Erik Banti. At the beginning of this adventure, the wine maker decided to prune shorter, sacrificing quantity with harsh shoot thinning, and use stainless steel vats – four times as expensive as the traditional concrete version – while investing energy in hygiene in the cellars.

This is what you'll discover: the history of a great wine and the relationship between Erik Banti winery and the territory of Maremma! With this wine tasting experience you will taste 4 wines:

- Morellino Classico

- Organic Morellino

- Morellino Riserva

- The SuperTuscan

Welcome to the Pioneer of the Morellino di Scansano!
