Vaio - Morellino di Scansano DOCG
> Guaranteed appellation of controlled origin
> Black / Gold label
The grapes start ripening by August and the grapestone skin slowly acquires a darker color: it's a process locally called "invaiatura". Vaio is in fact an old adjective standing for "spotted or dappled with dark or black spots" and for "blackening, as said of fruit, olives, grapes, when ripening". We have named this wine Vaio in honor of this old word now forgotten.
Our Vaio red wine, yet another precious gem coming from the territory of Tuscany, is raised in the Morellino di Scansano vineyards and is refined in our Montalcino cellars, near to the Brunello barrels, enriching Villa Poggio Salvi's wine assortment. Vaio combines clearly structured and complex aromas with the fruity and fresh characters of a young wine, featuring a great potential in developing and in ageing.
Starting with the 2007 harvest Morellino di Scansano has been awarded the "Guaranteed" denomination, therefore becoming the seventh DOCG in Tuscany.
