N’ANTIA TOSCANA ROSSO IGT 2017 BY BADIA DI MORRONA
While many of the iconic wines are worth their weight in gold, N’Antia Toscana Rosso IGT 2017 is something completely different—a sophisticated, elegant, and value driven Super-Tuscan beauty! 30 years ago someone coined the term “Super-Tuscan” to describe a new generation of region defining red blends coming out of Tuscany, Italy. There’s no official designation of what Super-Tuscans are, (can you imagine they were called table wine for a decade!), but most have become incredible.
Along the Tuscan coast, where legendary wines such as “Sassicaia” and “Ornellaia” were born, grapes such as Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot have established as strong a foothold as native varieties. For those who know and love Italian wine, Badia di Morrona needs no introduction. Everything about it, from the majestic property and the people behind it, to the quality and longevity of the wine itself, is epic.
Crafted primarily from Cabernet Sauvignon with a touch of Cabernet Franc and Merlot, today’s Toscana Rosso was aged 15 months in French oak and another 10 months in bottle. A sleek and succulent red blend, boasting a tremendous amount of wine for the money—and a name to add to your must-try list! Drink now or cellar for the next 5 years.

TASTING NOTE / Some of the best wines produced on the Tuscan coast are the fruit of the typical. Bordeaux blend of Cabernet Franc, Sauvignon and Merlot. Characterized by the terroir of Tuscany, they are wines of outstanding personality. Deep ruby red colour. Wide and complex on the nose where spices and balsamic tones integrate a beautiful base of ripe fruit, with light notes of currant, tobacco and vanilla. Intense palate. The taste is broad, soft and fleshy with a long and very pleasant finish.
Badia di Morrona is located in the centre of Colline Pisane and it is one of the four abbeys founded by the Counts of Fucecchio. The abbey, whose origins go date back to the year 1000 A.D., was the seat of monastery of Benedictine monks, who always produced wine.
The unique structure of the vineyards terroir, clay rich with some sandy and minerally soil, is reflected in the character of this wine and produces some unique flavour profiles and style.
