Description

Ampio delle Mortelle is dark ruby red in color. The nose expresses its captivating character with spicy notes of black pepper and licorice accompanied by pleasant aromas of small dark mixed berries especially currants and blueberries. Its bouquet is completed by delicate hints of aromatic herbs, violet blossoms and subtle sensations of cloves, tobacco, and chocolate. Its enticing palate is elegant with mouth filling tannins. A lengthy finish has depth with light sensations of bitter chocolate and sour black cherries.

The Le Mortelle estate is in the heart of Maremma in Tuscany, near the town of Castiglione della Pescaia, set in an extraordinary and fascinating position both for the territory’s unparalleled natural beauty and its historical heritage and culture. The Antinori family has always been present in this area. Evidence of ownership of the land in this area is recorded on a property deed dated 1863. It states their ownership of Poggio Franco, one of the best vineyards on the estate, together with other parcels of land. Since 1999, when the property was acquired, the family has dedicated their efforts to improving the vineyards and building the new winery with the firm belief that this area, slowly emerging on the Italian viticultural horizon, has great potential for the production of high-quality wines. Varieties grown in this area can fully express their own characteristics as well as the exceptional qualities of the terroir.

Food matches: Lovely with beef, lamb and veal, as well as cured Italian meats.
