Scansano / Argentario

Scansano / Argentario

A long but unforgettable day involving wild, empty mountain roads where Morellino di Scansano is made, then coastal cliff hangers where you can taste the yellow, fruity Ansonica. The trip can be halved by staying overnight in Argentario, the dramatic promontory jutting into the sea. Start from Cinigiano to Talamone on the sea. This little-known fishing port has dramatic views and good seafood at Il Buco. Head down to the fishing town of Porto Santo Steffano then west out to a private cape, Capo D’Uomo. It has amazing cliff-hanging vineyards worked by hand and the most beautiful small winery.  Return through Orbetello, through Magliano, Scansano, to Cinigiano.
