From the winery…
“The Cecchi family arrived in 1996, one of the first to invest in this area. Luigi Cecchi, father of the current owners Andrea and Cesare, realized that the grapes of Maremma showed an excellent level of quality, so he decided to buy the Val delle Rose. Until this point in time, much of the land, including that of the Val delle Rose estate, had been abandoned and used exclusively for grazing, but thanks to the Cecchis and a few other pioneers, these farms were transformed into well-ordered vineyards providing more value to the region.
Maremma has become a hotbed for so-called international grape varieties such as cabernet sauvignon, merlot and syrah. It famously spawned the term super Tuscan for a whole new wine category. However, the indigenous vermentino is clearly ready for its star turn. Cecchi’s La Mora Vermentino has a voluptuous palate and a savory finish that guarantees dynamic and persistent flavor.”
