Cantina 8380 was established in 2010 by Iacopo and Filippo Rossi, two brothers who decided to pursue a life long dream to create what is perhaps the smallest (and bravest!) winery in Tuscany. By combining their birth dates (1983 and 1980), not only did they give the name to the vineyard, but they created, above all, that lively and dynamic spirit that makes this Tuscan vineyard a real gem. A small family vineyard that produces craft wines for those who love, above all, to share a great glass with friends.
Our vineyard measures a surface of about 3 hectares, in full productive maturity, bred with spurred cordon and a density of 3330 plants per hectare. The terroir from which these wines are grown is made of hard soils, where pebbles are mixed with clay and the vineyards share the land with Broom flowers – Genisteae and Garland thorns – Paliurus spina christi. The climate is typically Mediterranean, with warm and breezy summers, but interspersed with very short intense rains. The east-west exposure allows excellent sunshine.
The Cantina 8380 coultivars for the red are: Sangiovese (85%) and Merlot (15%) while for the white Vermentino. The soil is of medium mixture, basically clay, with sub-alkaline reaction. All these factors combined with experience and passion, give life, soul and a distinctive personality to our wines. We are sure you will enjoy them (responsibly).
Finely Crafted Tuscan Wines
Sangiovese is the grape of our Morellino 2018…
Characterized by a ruby red color with a characteristic transparency of the vine, and closely correlated with the weather conditions of the year. Intense, with strong hints of red fruit, in particular black cherry, and violet flowers.
In the mouth balanced, soft and warm, the refinement of a 25% percentage in Tonneaux, helps to diminish the natural astringency of this grape, making it softer and giving it a higher olfactory taste complexity.
On Friday September 21st, 2018 Cantina 8380 got second place at the “VANNUCCIO VANNUCCINI 6th EDITION” award.
The competition consists in a blind tasting of 15 samples of the 2017 vintage of Morellino di Scansano DOCG at the Morellino di Scansano Protection Consortium… we came in second!!! Great satisfaction for all the hard work.

Cantina 8380 is pleased to welcome Francesco Kurhajec as new Art Director of the company. Our goal is to define and improve the 8380 brand (as well as making sure he gets his hands dirty when harvest time comes).

Now in our fourth year of production of Morellino di Scansano, we have decided to embark on a new adventure. The production of a Morellino di Scansano Riserva. With a great Sangiovese 2017 and a tonneaux in french oak of Saint Martin. Now you just have to wait

An unexpected prize, a prize with a special flavor.
Being side by side winemakers of the caliber of Val Delle Rose, Poggiopaoli, was an indescribable satisfaction for us.
Proof also that a small reality such as ours can create products of excellence. An even more beautiful recognition precisely because it is the result of in-depth analysis by passionate people, without ulterior motives and prejudices, and moreover without being aware of the tasting label.
Our wines can be purchased online or at our sales point in beautiful Saturnia
(we recommend a stop at the thermal baths)
We can also arrange private wine tastings for small and large groups.
