Cecchi La Mora Morellino di Scansano Riserva 2011

Mora means “horse” in Italian, a tribute to the cattle-herding cowboys that historically lived in the Maremma region.  La Mora Morellino di Scansano Riserva is modern in style, and is aged in oak, which gives it a complex, spicy character.  This wine pairs well with game birds like roasted duck breast, roast pork, sausages, even hamburgers.
