Our Story

a story of generation

separatore uva

As a family-owned Winery and Vineyards; we grow grapes and craft some fantastic wines. Our focus is hand crafting wines from our 40 ha property located in Maremma, Tuscany. Our Sangiovese, Vermentino, Ansonica, Cabernet Sauvignon grapes are sourced from our vineyards. The history of winemaking in our family dates to 1898, when the great grandfather began working in the vineyards in the Monte Argentario, a small Italian village on the shores of the Mediteranean Sea. While tending the vineyards, our father, supported by his grandmother Lucia all along, began making wine for family and friends. Named for our great grandmother Lucia, our father, Luciano, assumed control of our family business in 1980– these were the humble beginnings of the Scotto family wine history. Since 1980 step by step the winery has grown and has continued to grow thanks to the passion and love for wine and Maremma transmitted by Luciano to Lorenzo and Luca sons. Lorenzo became a winemaker and Luca is to date a marketing and sales director.

The work and passion of a Family for the Land

a
The first land of the family

1886

The history of our family dates back to 1886, when Scotto Giuseppe bought his first land in Santa Potenziana in the Municipality of Monte Argentario. Here the first vines of Ansonica grapes were planted, thus creating a vineyard that still today, after five generations, our Family continues to cultivate.

The first grapes

1956

Our first grapes were then vinified by Giuseppe, known as ``il Moro`` and then his son Salvatore, known as ``Tore del Moro``, who along with his three sons and a daughter, carried on the company until 1956.

The first bottles

1981 - 1983

Nicola's son, Luciano, initiated the modernization of the company's viticulture, and in 1981 began the sale of bottled wine with a label; the first white wines were called Fonteblanda and Regio Etrusco, while the red Monte Argentario. In 1983 the first Vermentino grapes were planted. Then came the Santa Lucia Ansonica, the Brigante Vermentino and the rosato Canapone from Sangiovese grapes, shortly after the red Lutoscolo.

New products

1993 - 1996

In 1993 arrived Betto, produced with Sangiovese, Cabernet Sauvignon and Montepulciano, aged in barriques for 12/14 months. In 1996, betting on the great potential of the Maremma red wine, Luciano began to produce the D.O.C. wine. Morellino di Scansano Tore del Moro, with pure Sangiovese grapes, also focusing on the Riserva version, wines still produced by the company.

The passion of a family continues

2000

Luciano's passion for wine has attracted over the years the interest of the first son Lorenzo, the current winemaker of the company, and later also the second son Luca, a graduate in Economics. And together they manage the Cellar with passion. With their mother Tosca they also run a B & B style farmhouse.

New Cellar

2008

The growth of the company took place in 2008, the year in which the work began on the new winery in Località Collecchio, in the municipality of Magliano in Tuscany. The first harvest of the new winery arrives in 2010.
