Ghiaccio Forte

Ghiaccio Forte (literally ice fortress) was once a flourishing and wine-producing Etruscan city. Today it is one of the better wineries in the Maremma. The cellar is located less than a kilometer from the historic settlement. The special winery is owned by Filippo Chia, also owner and winemaker of the renowned Montalcino house Castello Romitorio. The domain is located on the Tuscan coast, just south of Grosseto. Filippo owns about twenty hectares of vineyards, twelve of which are in Morellino di Scansano. The proximity to the Mediterranean Sea provides cooling in the quite warm region, and therefore beautiful freshness in the grapes, which can ripen perfectly here. The vineyards have been farmed organically since 2020.

Although 15% other grapes are allowed, Filippo makes his Morellino (since 2018) from 100% sangiovese. The grapes are harvested by hand and thoroughly selected and destemmed upon entering the cellar. The fermentation takes place in stainless steel tanks. Wood aging does not achieve this pure sangiovese expression.

The result is a powerful, rich but at the same time supple red wine, Tuscan sangiovese through and through. Ripe red cherry fruit, savory spiciness, juicy freshness and a medium body. A delicious wine with rustic Tuscan cuisine, such as pasta or polenta with wild boar ragout. It also stores well for up to five years after harvest.
