A small step forward for the denomination born in the year 2000 in one of the most beautiful agricultural territories in the world: the Val d’Orcia and the Crete senesi. A land of soft hills where the vines are alternated with woods, olive groves, and on lower grounds field of grains. Fattoria del Colle is in the Doc Orcia territory and produces two wines from this denomination: Leone rosso and Cenerentola, the second of which is made with only Tuscan grapes – Sangiovese and Foglia tonda -.From this year onwards Doc Orcia will also have the “riserva” type, which must have at least one years ageing in oak barrels, and a type called “Sangiovese” with a maximum of 10% of other local grape types like Colorino, Canaiolo, Malvasia Nera and Foglia Tonda. These decisions underline a production strategy regarding quality and identity; a strategy which honours this young, small but very competitive denomination.
