The San Giuseppe homestead, an old stone farmhouse in the Fattoria Mantellassi estate, gives its name to this Morellino di Scansano D.O.C.G. selection. After the vintage in the month of January, the year's best lots of Morellino are selected and aged in small French oak barrels for about six months. After 2-3 months of bottle aging this wine boasts excellent organoleptic qualities: a superior smooth and balanced vinous bouquet, and a pleasant fresh taste.
