I Perazzi was created to be unlike most other Morellino's which see little or no time in oak. The blend of I Perazzi is more expressive and better demonstrates the potential of the terroir. It also hints towards what the top wine from the estate called Aragone. I Perazzi is named after the fruit trees that grow on the estate and bear a pear like fruit, which is depicted on the label
To express this terrior to the fullest with new and exciting grape varieties. La Mozza consists of 36 hectares (90 acres) and lies in the Southwest corner of Tuscany’s Maremma, a dozen kilometres from the sea and 45 minutes Southwest of Montalcino. This area is much drier than the fog-draped hills of central Tuscany. The lack of morning mist means the grapes start ripening at sunrise, and are sun-drenched until sunset. Rain is scarce as the Island of Elba off the coast acts as a windbreak, shifting eastbound moisture to the north and south. Here hot-climate varieties like Syrah and Alicante thrive, and the acidic edge of Sangiovese has mutated into Morellino’s lush cherry fruit.
