Badia di Morrona is located in the Pisan hills (Colline Pisane) in the comune of Terricciola between Pisa and Florence. It is one of the four badie or monasteries founded by the count of Fucecchio, dating back to the 11th century when it was run by Benedictine monks. Dedicated to both farming (olive oil) and viticulture, the estate represents the perfect marriage between tradition and modern technology. 

It was purchased in 1939 by the Gaslini Alberti family. The current owners (Filippo and Alessandra, 3rd generation) have recently completed building a new winery. Not only are Chianti DOCG vines grown, but Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Shiraz, Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc are cultivated as well. Out of 600 hectares, 110 hectares are planted with vines, mostly grown on clay soil - all grapes are harvested by hand. Note: The winery has a big solar implant that allows them to produce green energy and to be self sufficient. The wines are sustainably grown and vegan.

This tasty Chianti is made of 85% Sangiovese, 10% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Merlot, from vines densely planted to 5600 plants per hectare on sandy limestone-rich soils. The selected parcels all enjoy south or south-eastern exposures. The grapes macerate for over a week, are vinified in stainless steel tanks and aged in concrete vats. Nose of wild berry, blue flower, and tangy spices. Juicy and high-toned on the attack, with weight and supple texture.

This Chianti is delicious! Hailing from a good, small quantity vintage, it has admirable depth, great grip and ripe, balanced tannins on the palate. Although this is not aged in oak, it is not a light red. Italian wine lovers will rejoice in this traditional Chianti example. Cherries, herbs, balsamic notes, hints of earth...
