Doga delle Clavule is located in the borough of Magliano in Toscana, in the heart of the production of the Morellino di Scansano DOCG. The farm estate, crossed by a river after which it is named, spreads out for an overall area of more than 130 hectares. The landscape alternates between vineyards and olive groves. Several Etrurian necropolis were found in the territory witnessing the existence of populations devoted to vine growing since ancient times. Doga delle Clavule is another property belonging to the Caparzo family whose wines have been longtime favourites of Bishop’s Cellar customers.
A fresh, intense, persistent wine with floral aromas. Delicate and pleasantly savory on the palate.
This Vermentino, grown in southern Tuscany’s Maremma region, is quite distinct from the Vermentino wines from Sardinia and Liguria. Here it grows on gentle hillsides on sedimentary soil and benefits from the breeze coming off the Tyrrhenian sea. The wine is fermented in stainless steel at cool temperatures, with no malolactic fermentation in order to maintain freshness.
