Moris Farms - Morellino Riserva 2014 Ml. 750
To 12 months
"Two hundred years ago the Moris Family left Spain to come to the Tuscan Maremma, a divine land and a land renowed for its wine: a fantasy was turning into reality. A fresh and genuine love for a still virgin land, barely touched by the cumbersome presence of man, yet rich in extraordinary natural resources whose value could be enhanced by doting hands. This love is also and especially for the wine that, in this countryside, finds its ideal environment and that for the Moris family has always been a splendid passion. The farm's history is enclosed in this profound and wise simplicity that recalls the much mourned atmosphere of the good old things, things made with care and dedication by the people who love what have chosen to do: a simple history enshrined in every bottle that Morisfarms offers you."
For generations the Moris family has dedicated itself to agriculture. However, in the last few years, it has focused its interest and specialised in viticulture. Now it devolves all its attention and care to this, finding in it its greatest rewards.
The land's altitude varies from 80 to 100 metres above sea level. The vines are south-westerly located.
The Poggio la Mozza vineyards, are located in the DOC area of Morellino di Scansano. The Moris family replanted them for the first time in 1995 and replanting still continues to this day.
The whole of the Poggio la Mozza area is hilly, and at an altitude of about 100 metres above sea level.
Since 2011 both companies are part of the DOC Maremma Toscana.
