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.

Clear violet, rose in colour, perfumed fresh rose, wild strawberries on the nose. Slight chocolate with red pepper and gentle tannins harmonized with an elegant finish. Pure Cabernet Franc. Try in 2016.
