Azienda Il Grillesino
Bolgheri may have claimed the Cabernet crown in this maritime part of southern Tuscany known as Maremma, but Scansano remains its most promising zone for Sangiovese. Azienda Il Grillesino was founded in 1999, specialising in the local clone of Sangiovese, known as Morellino, as well as the local variety Ciliegiolo. The estate now consists of three vineyards: eleven hectares in Grancia, fifteen hectares in Magliano, and a new seventeen-hectare development next to the winery.
