About the wine

A powerful yet silky wine that bears the hallmark traits of a top Sangiovese from the Tuscan coast. Combining freshness and structure with a fresh, coastal influence, elegant cherry fruit and a savoury edge provide the perfect balance between earthiness and ripe red fruits.

Ghiaccio Forte’s name derives from an ancient fortified Etruscan settlement five minutes from the cellar and translates as ‘ice fort’. This area has been dedicated to producing wine for a millennia and Ghiaccio Forte strives to embody the best traditions of the past, as well as the future of Morellino di Scansano.

About the wine

This is a 100% Sangiovese wine. 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.
