Morellino di Scansano DOCG ‘Titolato Strozzi’

label image label image

Tasting Notes

The Morellino ‘Titolato Strozzi’ is made with estate-owned sangiovese grapes and 10% of the local variety ciliegiolo which enhances the wine with freshness and fruity notes. Bright ruby red in color, it offers an intense bouquet of red fruit and berries. Good structure with elegant tannins and a long, persistent finish. It is the perfect partner for a variety of risottos, roasted pork or steak Florentine.

Titolato’ stands for ‘having a noble title’. The family logo bears two crowns, the one on the left represents the Guicciaridni Counts, the one on the right is for Prince Strozzi.
