"A wine of simple and fragrant drinking pleasure, a typical expression of the Sangiovese of the Pisan hills, a wine which drinks well throughout the entire meal.
An intense and lively ruby red with lovely purple highlights. Elegant and intense on the nose with aromas of berry fruit and aromatic herbs. Full in flavor, savory, soft, and balanced." - Winery
"The Badia di Morrona is located in the Pisan hills (Colline Pisane) between Pisa and Florence and is one of the four badie or monasteries founded by the count of Fucecchio. The monastery dates back to the 11th century when it was run by Benedictine monks. It is a large estate dedicated both to farming and viticulture. The estate represents the perfect marriage between tradition and modern technology in the production of its wines and olive oil. In fact the current owners have recently completed building a new winery. Not only Chianti DOCG vines are grown but also Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Shiraz, Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc. Though the estate is relatively large, all grapes are harvested by hand.." -Importer
