Brand Badia di Morrona

The family-owned Badia di Morrona is located in the Pisan hills (Colline Pisane) in the comune of Terricciola between Pisa and Florence close to the Mediterranean Sea. It is one of the four badie (plural for abbey or monastery) 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 delicious Super Tuscan named Taneto is made of 70% Syrah, 15% Sangiovese and 15% Merlot. The grapes are manually harvested and come from east facing vineyards located 180 meters above sea level. The vines are planted on sandy, limestone soil, rich in fossils. This is Badia di Morrona “Mini Tuscan”… aka their affordable Super Tuscan. The high percentage of Syrah giving this wine its strong personality. Aged in French oak barrels for 12 months.

Deep in color and flavor, with aromas of cinnamon, cocoa, sea salt and black pepper mingling with ripe red and black fruits. Smooth on the palate with velvety tannins, this is a crazy value in the Super Tuscan category. We plan on making alot of friends with this wine.
