Two hundred years ago the Moris family moved from their native Spain to Italy’s Maremma, the wild West of Tuscany. Today they own and work two farms, Fattoria Poggetti near Massa Maritima, and Podere Le Mozzine in Morellino di Scansano. Poggetti has clay-based soils giving hearty wines while Le Mozzine’s more sandy soil yields lighter more elegant wines. Under Adolfo Parentini (married to a Moris) the estate has become a leader in fine wine production, introducing green harvests and controlled barrique ageing.
As in Bolgheri, the wines can be a blend of Sangiovese and French varietals like Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot.
