The Morellino Riserva Moris manifests the maximum potential of the Sangiovese grape in sunny Maremma. Produced for the first time in 1988, this wine is elegant and ripe on the nose, and intense and complex on the palate. The Riserva benefits from a long aging period and is excellent with grilled meats.

The grapes are harvested during the last two weeks of September and first week of October. Fermentation in temperature-controlled cement tanks with two “remontages” per day for a 20-day period of maceration. The wine is then left to age for a year in oak barrels, some used two or three times before, with an intermediate transfer. After a further refinement lasting at least six months, the wine is then put on the market.
The Poggio la Mozza Estate extends 55 hectares set in the rolling hills typical of Maremma between the Comune of Grosseto to the Tyrrhenian Sea. Poggio La Mozza lies entirely in the district of D.O.C.G. Morellino di Scansano. Its 35 hectares of vineyards are planted in sandy soils at an altitude of about 100 meters above sea level. This gives rise to red wines with soft, elegant tannins.
