An outstanding value buy, the Tenuta Ghiaccio Forte 2018 Morellino di Scansano Ghiaccio Forte opens to a beautifully rich and darkly saturated appearance. Up until this vintage, the wine was 85% Sangiovese with 15% Syrah. Starting with this excellent 2018, the wine is pure Sangiovese from one of the wildest and most untouched corners of Tuscany. This classic vintage delivers sharp intensity and a focus that gives the wine tight and delineated lines. This Morellino delivers a medium weight, followed by enough tannic firmness to pair with veal steaks or pork chops. Tenuta Ghiaccio Forte is the estate of Filippo Chia (of Castello Romitorio) in Scansano closer to the Tuscan Coast. Monica Larner, 15th Oct 2020
