Tasting Notes

Decades ago, Moris Farms fought hard for their own appellation of Morellino di Scansano. Years later, their commitment to their vines still shines through in every bottle they make. This full-bodied red wine is rustic in a great way and speaks of Tuscany with every drop.

Staff Pick Notes

Looking for an amazing all around wine to drink on its own or with a hearty dinner? Maybe something that will satisfy the crowd as well as the connoisseur? The Morisfarms Morellino Di Scansano is a wine for all people and occasions.

It has the value at well under $20, an utterly charming rusticity, moderate alcohol level, the distinctive combination of fruit concentration, earthiness and minerality that Italy seems to deliver more consistently than any other country, and an amazing drinkability that allows you to forgive its level of complexity- no wine's perfect after all. Another diamond in the rough overachieving Italy!
