Vigneto Col di Bacche

Tuscany can offer a variety of wines capable of satisfying every taste. Important wines, such as Brunello di Montalcino, Bolgheri Superiore, Chianti Classico Gran Selezioni, Nobile di Montepulciano or the heterogeneous category of Supertuscans. But also everyday wines, those wines of delicious drinkability which are joyful and can be tasted without any problem. Among the latter, which are the subject of this column, we certainly include Chianti and Morellino di Scansano of the current vintage.

Therefore we chose an excellent Pisan Chianti (from Badia di Morrona) and two Morellino (Fattoria di Magliano and Col di Bacche), both from the area of Magliano.
 
Badia di Morrona is an estate of remarkable size and beauty (about 550 hectares in total, of which about one hundred are planted with vines and about forty with olive trees), located between Pisa and Volterra, with inside the ancient complex, first Benedictine and then Camaldolese. The guide Filippo Gaslini Alberti that, compared to the past, has worked on the better definition of the fruit in the wines, thanks to a greater attention in the vineyard and the completion of the cellar. 
 
Going down to the coast, a visit to Uccellina natural park, in Maremma, is a wonderful experience: a natural environment which speaks about Mediterranean colors and scents. Right at the edge of the park, at about 15 km from the sea, there is the winery of Alberto Carnasciali and his wife Franca Buzzegoli, Col di Bacche, 18 hectares in the hills. On about 13 hectares have been planted the typical vines of the area, which is the one of the Docg Morellino di Scansano, therefore sangiovese, as well as a small quantity of vermentino for the realization of a fresh and drinkable white wine. There are also merlot and cabernet sauvignon for the classic Igt. 
 
From Cupi we go towards Magliano to stop at Sterpeti, where we find Fattoria di Magliano. When entrepreneur Agostino Lenci from Lucca arrived in Magliano in Tuscany, in Maremma, towards the end of the nineties, he decided he wanted to produce great wines and he set the whole winery on the concepts of a quality wine making. Many years later, the helm is now in the hands of his son, we can say the goal has been achieved.
