Morellino di Scansano DOCG & Montecucco DOC wines

Both Morellino di Scansano and Montecucco DOC wines are produced in the Roccalbegna area.

Morellino di Scansano DOCG, as the name suggests, is made mainly in the hills around the village of Scansano. Morellino is the local name for Sangiovese grapes, which makes up at least 85% of the wines. DOC status was granted in 1978 and since then the wine has become well-known in Italy.

Montecucco wines were granted DOC status in 1998. The Montecucco area lies between the Morellino di Scansano and Brunello di Montalcino areas. Montecucco Rosso is made with Sangiovese (minimum 60%) and other red grapes.

Roccalbegna’s Villa Patrizia winery is located on road to Grosseto just after the village of Cana. Villa Patrizia produce organic wines from both the Morellino di Scansano and Montecucco denominated areas.
