A separate discussion should be devoted to the production of wines: in Maremma we find very high-quality wines among reds, whites, rosés wines, passiti, late harvests and even sparkling wines.
The simultaneous and close presence of sea, mountains and hills make the production unique and highly appreciated.
Morellino di Scansano is the flagship wine of the area from Scansano to the territories between the Ombrone and Albegna rivers.
It is among the best-known Tuscan red wines and certainly the most typical of Maremma.
A wine that finds its origin in an environment that encompasses the advantages of the hilly territory and the scents coming from the sea, where the Etruscans already grew vines.
Sangiovese is the basic grape variety, sometimes the only one. Grapes from black-fruited vines may be added to it.
Ansonica Costa dell'Argentario is produced in the hilly and insular part of the southern area of the province of Grosseto and includes the municipalities of Manciano, Orbetello and Capalbio in part, and in full those of Isola del Giglio and Monte Argentario.
Always produced on the promontory and hills of what is known as the Costa d'Argento, it has a more or less intense straw yellow color, a slightly fruity aroma and a dry, soft, lively and harmonious flavor.
The basic grape variety of this wine is the white Ansonica.
Another protagonist of Maremma is the Bianco di Pitigliano, a wine obtained from grapes from vineyards located in the municipal territories of Pitigliano and Sorano and in part of those of Scansano and Manciano.
Bianco di Pitigliano has a straw-yellow color with greenish reflections; the aroma is delicate, the flavor dry, lively, with a slightly bitterish base, medium-bodied and smooth.
It lends itself to traditional Maremma recipes, such as Acquacotta, but is also excellent with fish dishes.
We end this short guide with a unique wine: the Montecucco DOC.
We are at the foot of Mount Amiata, on the border with Montalcino: the composition of the soil is characterized by the presence of lava compounds, deposited when the Amiata was active, which give the vines minerality and tastiness.
Montecucco DOC includes several types of wine: red, Sangiovese, white and Vermentino.
