About La Mozza:
All aware of the enormous potential of the Maremma region of southwest Tuscany, Joe and Lidia Bastianich and Chef Mario Batali formed La Mozza in 2000. They came together to create a new winery with a modern mission: To express this terroir to the fullest with new and exciting grape varieties. The name of the top wine from the estate, Aragone, recalls the Spanish heritage of the area. The indigenous Sangiovese is blended with Mediterranean varieties, like Syrah and Carignan, to create a unique "Super-Med." I Perazzi Morellino di Scansano DOCG is the foundation of the winery, and focuses on the pure, clean fruit of this Sangiovese clone. A percentage of Alicante and Syrah are added to give this Morellino a distinct flavor profile.
