Collazzi

Toscana Rosso IGT – 2009

Region: ITALY - TUSCANY

Collazzi

Villa Collazzi is one of the most impressive estates in all of Tuscany. This architectural landmark was originally designed by Michelangelo in 1560 for his friend, Agostino Dini. It offers commanding views of the surrounding countryside. I Collazzi is a property of the Marchi brothers, Carlo and Bona. During the last decade the Marchi brothers invested heavily in the development of Collazzi’s farming business, renewing the vineyards and restructuring the cellar, with the goal of producing excellent wines.

Deep ruby. Plum, cocoa, coffee, sweet spices and dark cherry on the impressively big, deep nose. Suave, smooth and dense on the palate, with red and black fruit flavors, smooth tannins and excellent length. A big wine.

A wine with velvety tannins and ripe fruit with hints of tobacco and cedar box. Full and caressing. Always a solid and flavorful red. A blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and Cabernet Franc. Better in 2013.
