Pesto Perfect Red

Tasting notes: Cecchi was a pioneer in the Maremma,
This wine reflects the sunny terroir. Il Morellino di Scansano Cecchi is a blend
of 90% Sangiovese with grapes permitted in the area. La Mora is fermented in steel for a few months before bottling. Red ruby very intense with evident purple reflections, it has a typical fruity aroma. The palate is soft and persistence.

Pesto Perfect White!
The Cecchi family offers good-value buys with theirLa Mora line of wine from
the Tuscan Coast. Some 200,000 bottles are made of the white wine
and 300,000 bottles of the red.
-Monica Larner, Interim End of November 2017, The Wine Advocate

 
Vermentino La Mora combines the graceful taste of the vines to a wide-ranging and material character originating from the soil and climate characteristics of the coast. Aroma of yellow flowers for a surely voluptuous palate where a savoury finish guarantees a dynamic and persistent flavor.
Frangiacorta
It's ALL the Rage. And for Good Reason!
 

Tasting Notes

Franciacorta’s layered geological formations boast complex microclimates.
Wines are defined by both a sub-Alpine and Mediterranean-type climate due
to the proximity of Lake Iseo. Summers are tolerably hot and dry, while winters remain milder, contributing to freshness and complex aromas. Morainic soils are conducive to stone fruit flavors, spice and florality.

Food Pairing

Franciacorta’s moderate to high acidity makes it admirably versatile at the table. Animante Brut offers a zesty texture, a vein of minerality and vibrant acidity that cuts through a creamy risotto or pasta. For a delightful contrast, match to foods rich in umami such as mushrooms, cured meats or shellfish, flavors that will act as a balancing agent to the full stone fruit notes.
