The Ghiaccio Forte estate is dedicated to offer a new expression of red wine
from its vineyards in the Morellino di Scansano appellation along the
immaculately preserved wilderness of the southern Tuscan coastline. Ghiaccio
Forte is a leader in the area, specializing in the production of the traditional
Sangiovese grape. In order to impart further complexity and balance, two
non-traditional grape varieties have also been planted; Petit Verdot and Syrah.
The Ghiaccio Forte estate is at the forefront of a new movement of local
producers aiming to create high-quality wines with a blend of tradition and
innovation.

This wine combines freshness and structure with a blend of predominantly
Sangiovese, notable for its elegant cherry fruit, and a portion of Syrah giving
backbone and lending a smoky leather character to this coastal Tuscan red wine.
The wine is savory, with a notable maritime influence, and a perfect balance
between earthiness and ripe red fruits, with a hint of dried spice on the
finish.

"The 2018 Castello Romitorio Morellino di Scansano is a fine example of Tuscan
Sangiovese (Morellino being the grape’s local name) from an estate owned by the
celebrated neo-expressionist artist, Sandro Chia. Rich, dark and concentrated,
it sees no oak and is as fresh as it is succulent." Jonathan Ray, The Spectator
Magazine
