Antinori’s Le Mortelle and Rocca di Frassinello. Maremma is the new kid on the block in Tuscany. The region received its appellation as late as 2014. But it is a region with a history with ties back to the beginning of the “super-tuscans” in nearby Bolgheri.
“When Antinori bought the land here in 1999, there was only fruit grown here, including six hectares of blueberries”, says Giorgia Dimitriou, winemaker at Le Mortelle, Marchesi Antinori’s vineyard in Maremma. Today the estate has 270 hectares of which 170 hectares are vineyards. Two hectares of blueberries have been kept.
