Terre di Talamo, Tuscany
Some 150km south of the glamour of Bolgheri, Morellino di Scansano is the often forgotten other wine of the Maremma, Tuscany's southern coast. Terre de Talamo's 32 hectares of vineyard are planted on south-east facing hillsides overlooking the port of Talamone and the maritime influence, as well as the stony clay soil, does much to contribute to the character of the wines. The climate here is more temperate than inland at Chianti or Brunello with cooler days and warmer evenings that help the Sangiovese to ripen sooner and yield approachable, generous wines with softer tannins than their cousins.
