Wine Tasting & Olive oil
The wines of our cellar are: the whites, the well known high quality rosès, and particularly, the most important product is the deep red wine Morellino di Scansano D.O.C. either of the current year and "reserve" when after the first year of life it is aged in oak barrels for twelve months. The Morellino di Scansano produced at the farmhouse from sangiovese, ciliegiolo and canaiolo grapes. The wine looks ruby red with garnet color reflections when aged; the nose is pungent and large, nicely winy when young, ethereal and austere if aged; the taste is dry, warm, round, slightly tannic with very delicate tastes that resemble berries.
The alcohol volume varies depending on the year, from 12.5° to 13.8°. The fixed acidity ranges from 5.5 to 6 grams per litre. For its full bodied characteristics it's very appreciated in restaurants with the natural combination with red meat dishes, roasts and, most of all, with game dishes.
We produce olive oil from the historic varieties olive trees, (frantoio 70%, leccino 20%, moraiolo and impollinatori 10%) which are cultivated respecting tradition, hand-picked and pressed within 24 hours. The olive oil we obtain is quite simply excellent extra virgin olive oil.
Alberese 79 also produces Grappa di Morellino Sinibalda obtained from the distillation of our own Sangiovese grapes.
