Wine has always been produced in Tuscany, but rarely before along the coast, and while the genealogy of other areas at times goes all the way back to the Etruscans, nothing of the sort can be said of zones. Or of Monteregio, whose capital, Massa Marittima, is one of the few cities whose monuments and architecture suggest that the province of Grosseto also had some sort of past. And around and below, all the way to Grosseto to the south, a viticulture and oenology have developed, which demonstrate that here as well exciting, innovative, and, above all, high quality wines can indeed be made.
And among the leading estates which have made the most convincing offerings must surely be numbered Montebelli in Gavorrano where the Filotico - Tosi family, together with winemaker Claudio Gori, has, for well over a decade, presented a series of excellent and intriguing examples of what the area, at its best, can offer: a fragrant and elegant Vermentino - Viognier blend, a fine Sangiovese-based rosé, a wine, Acantòs, which joins the international (Syrah) to Sangiovese, i.e. to the tradition of Tuscany, and a top wine, the Fabula Riserva, which proves convincingly that here as well lovely Sangiovese is only a matter of conviction. And of talent.
