The wine is savory, with a notable maritime influence, and a perfect balance between earthiness and ripe red fruits, with a hint of dried spice on the finish.

Ghiaccio Forte is Castello Romitorio’s second estate (acquired in 1999) and located in Southern Scansano next to the ruins of the Etruscan fortified city from which it takes its name. The vineyards are planted on the slopes of Monte Amiata and benefit from the moderating influences of the Albegna River and nearby Mediterranean sea.

With a mission to create high-quality wine with a sense of heritage, Ghiaccio Forte places equal importances on tradition and innovation. All grapes are hand harvested before a process of careful selection and destemming. As of 2020, all vineyards are farmed organically.

The Morellino di Scansano is made from 100% Sangiovese. Unoaked, the wine is fermented in stainless steel tanks with two weeks of skin contact. The resulting style is powerful yet fresh with ripe red fruits and savoury earthy notes. This is a silky and elegant wine with a refined cherry core.

Traditional Tuscan wild boar ragu with pappardelle would sit perfectly next to a glass of this wine.
