The Oddbins Take

Maremma, the low-lying southern Tuscan area whence comes this wine, has only a fairly recent winemaking history. Historically, it was a swampland beset with poverty, crime and disease, and the efforts of one Baron Bettino Ricasoli of Brolio to establish a wine estate there in the 19th century were thwarted by the mortality rate among the malaria-stricken workforce. Thankfully the disease was eradicated in the 20th century, following the draining of the swamps, and winemaking has flourished since the 1970s, and the flower-powered fancies of this peach-and-lemon butterfly are free to join the many others among the newly-abundant vinous flora.
