About

In 2003, Alberto Tanzini and his brother bought the Roccapesta estate in southern Tuscany that contained the over 40 year-old vineyards that are supplying much of their wines’ grapes today. With the utmost respect for terroir, the environment and tradition, the almost 20 hectares has been converted to a sustainable winery producing award winning Morellino di Scansano.

Description

Ribeo is a peculiar type of Morellino: fresh and versatile, it represents an interesting variant from the traditional features, still maintaining the character and complexity of the wines of this land. The nose is juicy and fruity, with a good balance of acidity and persistence in the mouth, which truly conquer the palate and convince it to drink and drink again. Whether you start the dinner or are looking for a fresh wine that can perfectly hold the entire meal, Ribeo is a great fit.

Description

Roccapesta enbodies all the characteristics of a great red. As the most representative product of this terroir and its seasons, every vintage is different from the others, with one thread: an intense nose with pepper and spices, a full structure rich of shades of taste. Promising a capacity to express more and more in the time, it is good for now, or to be left for aging
