FATTORIA DEL COLLE WHERE THESE WINES ARE BORN
Fattoria del Colle was founded in 1592 by Donatella Cinelli Colombini’s ancestors. The estate has a 400 year old history with vineyards and with wine. In the centre there is a small hamlet with a villa, a chapel, a winery and farmhouses today transformed into country inn with restaurant. The surrounding panorama is beautiful (it resembles a medieval painting) and there are parks with 3 swimming pools.
Here we are in Southern Chianti area. At 404m above sea level, in a region well suited to the production of red wines that confines with Chianti Classico, Brunello and Vino Nobile wine territories. The soil is of new quaternary origin with sea sands and clay. The 17 hectares of vineyard cultivated following the organic regime practically entirely by hand, also the harvest too is done by hand.
A FOUR STAR VINTAGE
The 2018 harvest was scarce because of the first the previous year and because of the rainfall in the spring disturbed the flowering. As always nature takes away but also gives.
In September the climate was ideal for the production of fine wines, with cold nights and sunny days that reduced the dimension of the grapes and increase the synthesis of the grapes’ perfumes. The harvest reaped clusters that were sound, ripe and with ample noble substances.
CHIANTI SUPERIORE DOCG 2018 BIO FATTORIA DEL COLLE
Chianti Superiore is a type of Chianti that as the name indicates us superior. This means that there is a higher quality level with respect to normal Chianti. It comes from less productive vineyards and is sold after a longer storage time in the winery. It contains Sangiovese and a small quantity of other red varieties authorized in Tuscany. The harvest took place between 2 -5 October 2018 and was done by hand.
We produced 28.000 bottles.
The distinctive element of this harvest is the richness in aroma, hints of ripe berries such as cherries, blackberries, blueberries and the floral nuances that recall violets. In the mouth the wine has a good tannic and acidic that is well balanced with a crunchy fruit and fullness in taste.
ROSA DI TETTO ROSATO IGT TOSCANA 2018 BIO FATTORIA DEL COLLE
Only 2500 bottles of this wine, a true special edition. Fattoria del Colle has a long tradition in the production of rosé wine. At the beginning is was called “Acqua di tetto” which meant water from the roof, then Donatella Cinelli Colombini changed the name as she was inspired by the centenary clambering roses that grow on the façade of the 16th century villa.
The wine is made with 100 % Sangiovese picked by hand between September 20-21 2018. The grapes had to be cooled, de-stemmed, crushed and then put into a small vat where they stayed 18 days in contact with the skins. Then the must began its fermentation that lasted about 20 days at controlled temperature.
The rosé from Fattoria del Colle is old rose colour, with perfumes of apple and exotic fruits with hints of violet typical of Sangiovese wines. The taste is well balanced with silky tannins and a pleasant freshness. It leaves in the mouth a delicious trace of red berries.
