Mantellassi

The Fattoria Mantellassi has a long and vivid winemaking history dating back to the 1800’s when the Mantellassi family worked in the vineyards of the Magliano sub-region of Tuscany. It wasn’t until the 1960’s that the Fattoria or ‘Farm’ was able to acquire land and plant four hectares of their own vineyards which was gradually added to over the years until it reached its current vine holdings of 215 hectares. The vineyards, are situated amongst rolling hills on volcanic calcareous soil, planted predominantly to Sangiovese with additional red variety plantings of Alicante, Cabernet Sauvignon, Morellino, Merlot and Canaiolo Nero for the reds as well as Malvasia and Sauvignon Blanc for the whites.

In 1978, Fattoria Mantellassi played a key role in obtaining DOC (Denominazione di Origine Controllata) recognition for Morellino di Scansano wine which is the brands flagship and it is this unceasing pursuit of quality which has earned Mantellassi the reputation as one of the most prestigious producers in Magliano Toscana.
