When looking for a potential producer and their wines we look to our customer’s requirements in terms of price, quality and exclusivity.
VinumTerra is full of lovers of wine and having wines of interest and quality is important to us in our daily work. Often our producers are very small and making wines of impressive quality, sometimes they are larger but still frequently family owned. Sometimes they are the better co-operatives that make wine of character rather than based only on price.
They are all makers of wine who we feel comfortable dealing with.
Centred on the medieval town of Scansano, south east of the city of Grosseto, this area of Tuscany is called Maremma and was, until the 1980s most famous for breeding cattle – particularly the Maremmana. It's suitability for vines has been recognised and over the last 20 years there has been a great deal of investment in both vineyards and wineries. Morellino is the local name for the Sangiovese grape. The estate is currently run by two brothers, Aleardo e Giuseppe Mantellassi, and whilst the family had been in the vineyards since the 1860's it was only in 1960 that the winery was established and now has 95ha of vineyards.
Indeed Mantellassi was one of the pioneers of serious winemaking in Scansano in the 1980s.
