Before heading south to Tuscany, the Endrici established one of the oldest wineries in Trentino, northern Italy in 1885. The wines are made at the foothills of the Dolomites where mild Mediterranean climate meets cool air from the Alps. Today, Paolo, the 4th generation, with his wife and two children, both graduates of the prestigious Geis-senheim wine school in Germany, are involved in all aspects of the operation, aiming to create a sustainable and natural environment around the farm and vineyard. Their skill full hands make Mountain wines which are intense, aromatic and precise, preserving the traditional Northern identity while blending in international flag bearers.
The Maremma gold rush convinced the Endrizzi family to move south from Trentino before the new millenium – where a beautiful and scenic 30 hectare land was purchased near Grosseto, not far from the Tyrrhenian Sea. A modern winery was built where they could continue their sustainable efforts, however the outcome from a different soil structure, international red varietals and warm Tuscan sun brings out more generous and smoother wines.
Harry Eyers of the Telegraph writes “Morellino di Scansano, the quintessential wine of the Maremma, is now the Tuscan wine of choice in the chicest enoteche (wine bars) of Rome. I’ve loved morellino since I first came across it, tasting samples with my wine merchant father, nearly 20 years ago, when it was fairly new on the wine map.”
Serpaia Morellino di Scansano, a pure Sangiovese, fermented in stainless steel and raised in Slovanian oak for 8 months has an ageing potential 5 years. 13° ABV
