Val delle Rose
Passion for Sangiovese grapes is the origin of the Val delle Rose vineyard in the Maremma and its excellent Italian wines.
With over one hundred years of experience in the world of wine and winegrowing, supported by the knowledge and awareness that a region cannot be represented only by a single place of origin of its wines, the Cecchi family acquired the third winery in 1996. They already own the Cecchi winery and Villa Cerna.
Val delle Rose, in the heart of the Maremma, in the up-and-coming wine-growing district of the Morellino di Scansano, has only 25 hectares of vineyards, but the investment is a small agricultural revolution, since the technologies used up to that point in time were not capable of delivering a uniform and constant quality that would have ensured the survival of the estate.
The Maremma represents one of the new horizons of quality Italian viticulture. Attentive and intensive investigations of the soils, a practice that will subsequently produce many other wine producers in the Maremma, show the enormous potential that lies in this terroir. The company decides to increase its own vineyards to the current 100 hectares, where Sangiovese plays the role of the skin.
One of the most important and up-and-coming areas in Italian winegrowing is the Morellino di Scansano area, which has developed so strongly that it was given the DOCG designation in 2007. The entire wine-growing area covers 1200 hectares of vineyards in six municipalities near Grosseto. Scansano is situated at about 500 m above sea level. The vineyards are situated on the slopes around Scansano and are favoured by the Mediterranean sea climate.
Val delle Rose produces four terroir wines, a White Vermentino, a Morellino di Scansano and the associated Riserva, as well as a red cuvée from Merlot and Cabernet Franc, in the name of Aurelio a homage to the Maremma and the most important Roman trade route Via Aurelia.
