Toscana Rosso IGT – 2018

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.

#69 of TOP 100 WINES OF ITALY 2021

Lots of blackcurrant and mint on the nose with plums, too. It’s full-bodied with very integrated tannins that are chewy but beautiful and give length to the wine. Racy and solid. Cabernet sauvignon, merlot, cabernet franc and petit verdot. Try after 2024.

Camphor, blue flower, dark-skinned berry and French oak aromas come to the forefront on this full-bodied red. A blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot and Petit Verdot, the savory, elegantly structured palate features ripe blackberry, cassis, mocha and ground pepper. Firm, refined tannins and fresh acidity provide support and balance.
