Chianti Lovers: Tutela Morellino di Scansano

16 Feb 2018

(February 11, 2018) … FLORENCE - At the Chianti Lovers anteprima tasting this year the Consorzio Tutela Morellino di Scansano DOCG got some special recognition in the form of its own tasting leaflet with 32 wines represented: 17 regular wines from the 2017 vintage and 15 Reserva wines from the 2015 vintage. Everybody hailed the 2015 vintage as something very special so I looked at the Reserve wines to find out just how special they were.

For those who have been following my anteprime notes you’ll know I only review finished wines, most of these Reservas were barrel samples so the Good / Better / Best rules apply – finished wines are scored at the bottom of this list:
