The Sangiovese, which in Scansano is called "Morellino", had long been present in the territory, but had its greatest impulse by the baron Ricasoli, who lover of these lands for copious wild game, noted the quality of the Maremma vines much to want for the newborn Chianti scansanesi grafting and with their marze, to give vigor to the vineyards of the noblest Tuscan farms. At that time the cultivation of the vine was very high density, up to 10,000 plants / hectare, called dense and low. The vine areas reached the 500 hectares at the end of the 19th century. The phylloxera that decimated the vineyards throughout Europe, wars and disinterested brought the Maremma viticulture to a deep depression, only thanks to the agrarian pacts of the 50s, the rows, which for more than half a century had been used to divide the fields, they returned to being protagonists in the Maremma agricultural economy.
