Winemaker Notes

A fairly intense ruby color. The bouquet is intense and persistent, with notes of sour cherries, blackberries, wild berry fruit, licorice and vanilla. The palate is savory, full, persistent and harmonious.

The Doga delle Clavule estate consists of 192 hectares (475 acres) in the region of Maremma. 41 hectares (101 acres) are planted mainly with Sangiovese, locally called Morellino and few hectares of Merlot, Alicante, Syrah and Vermentino. The name “La Doga” means “barrel stave” in Italian and it means “creek” from the old dialect used in this part of Tuscany. The name was chosen because in the past there used to be a creek crossing the property. “Clavule” means vines in latin. The estate is owned by Elisabetta Gnudi Angelini, who also owns Altesino, Borgo Scopeto and Caparzo.

Maremma is a part of the Tuscan wine growing region. It is a region, almost due south of the town of Montalcino, only about 15 kilometers (10 miles) from the Tyrrhenian sea.

Maremma, only a two hour driving southwest of the city of Florence, covers an area that roughly corresponds to the coastal province of Grosseto. An extensive and largely undeveloped territory that stands in stark contrast to the compact Montalcino or Chianti Classico areas.

Legend has it that the region’s prized red grape, Sangiovese, took its name locally from the rusty, red “Morelli” horses that used to carriage high officials to and from the village of Scansano in the 1700s. Today the region’s most valuable wine, known as Morellino di Scansano, is of a similar blend as Chianti with a minimum of 85% Morellino (Sangiovese) and 15% other local varieties. But Scansano’s hilly, coastal location gives a full-bodied, and more fruit forward and less acid-driven red compared to its inland neighbor.
