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.
Bright red. Aromas of red cherry, cinnamon and flowers on the balsamic nose. Then sweet and smooth in the mouth, with juicy flavors of ripe red cherry and brown spices. Finishes long and creamy, with ripe tannins and lively acidity.
Very spicy with lots of dried flowers and cranberry sauce on the nose. Dark plums too. Full body, with fine tannins and sweet fruit finish. Pretty. Very good price for the quality. Melrot, Syrah and Sangiovese. Very drinkable now.
