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.

The Ghiaccio Forte estate is dedicated to offer a new expression of red wine from its vineyards in the Morellino di Scansano appellation along the immaculately preserved wilderness of the southern Tuscan coastline. Ghiaccio Forte is a leader in the area, specializing in the production of the traditional Sangiovese grape. In order to impart further complexity and balance, two non-traditional grape varieties have also been planted; Petit Verdot and Syrah. The Ghiaccio Forte estate is at the forefront of a new movement of local producers aiming to create high-quality wines with a blend of tradition and innovation.

This wine combines freshness and structure with a blend of predominantly Sangiovese, notable for its elegant cherry fruit, and a portion of Syrah giving backbone and lending a smoky leather character to this coastal Tuscan red wine. 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.

"The 2018 Castello Romitorio Morellino di Scansano is a fine example of Tuscan Sangiovese (Morellino being the grape’s local name) from an estate owned by the celebrated neo-expressionist artist, Sandro Chia. Rich, dark and concentrated, it sees no oak and is as fresh as it is succulent." Jonathan Ray, The Spectator Magazine
