Castelli del Grevepesa

Vineyards & Estates From the wide expansion of the vineyards planted and cultivated by the members themselves on the hills of the Chianti Classico region and after years of experience within these territories, small areas or even single vineyards have been identified where the grapes with superior qualitative characteristics can be cultivated. Among these areas the most renowned are: Panzano, a fortified medieval village built in the vicinity of our Etruscan and later Roman settlement; Lamole, a small village high up on the South-East Hills of Greve in Chianti and Castle of Bibbione, ancient Manor, which was property of Niccolò Machiavelli. Castelli del Grevepesa, a Wine Co-operative, was established in 1965 by a small group of eighteen winegrowers in Tuscany on the initiative of Mr. Gualtiero Armando Nunzi. Their intention was to bring together a group of people from different areas of the Chianti Classico region whose common purpose was to preserve the centuries old traditions of the Tuscan viticulture. Since its foundation Castelli del Grevepesa has concentrated on producing high quality wines by carefully selecting the grapes and by complying with the strict regulations of the Law and the Consorzio "Gallo Nero" (Black Rooster).

    Morellino di Scansano is a dry red wine from the coastal hills of southern Tuscany in Italy. One of the region's lesser-known DOCG wines, it sits, somewhat underappreciated, in the shadow of its more famous counterparts from Chianti, Montalcino and Montepulciano. The wine is produced in the rolling hills around the medieval village of Scansano. This, rather simply, explains the second half of its name. The first half is less obvious. It refers to the grape variety used to make the wine – Morellino – which is in fact Tuscany's favorite Sangiovese masquerading under a local synonym. The name morellino is a diminutive form of morello, which means 'dark'. The name translates, then, as 'little dark one', an etymology almost identical to another of Sangiovese's many synonyms, Brunello. Learn More
