In the hilly amphitheater of Tuscany's Maremma region, above an ancient lake the Romans called Prelius, is the Prelius estate. Organically farmed by the Stianti Mascheroni family of Castello di Volpaia, this property marks the family's first venture outside of Chianti Classico.
The Prelius label represents the fluid waters of the once-present lake with a contemporary flair that is symbolic of the youthful energy brought to the property by Federica Mascheroni Stianti, who oversees the Prelius estate.
Cabernet Sauvignon gives this wine its structure, Merlot contributes roundness and Cabernet Franc offers elegance and aromatics. The Morello di Prile has a vivid, ruby color with dark purple highlights. The aromas are rich, ripe blackberry and blueberry with notes of oak and spice. The smooth tannins provide a good structure for the delicious red-fruit finish, which lingers.
