Quick Overview

Coltassala, initially classified as a Supertuscan, is named after the homonymous vineyard where we grow indigenous clones of Sangiovese. Since 1998, when it became been possible to produce Chianti Classico with 100% Sangiovese, Coltassala has been affirmed by the international press as the archetype of the Chianti Classico.

Our magnums, double magnums, 5 litres bottles will be packed in wooden boxes.

The 2015 growing season was very warm. Beginning in May, the growth cycle of the grapevines began 10 days earlier than any time in our recorded vinicultural history at the winery. The month of July presented a very hot period, including record heat throughout all of Italy. This hot and dry condition resulted in vineyard hydro-stress, which accelerated the verasional development in the grape clusters. Temperatures remained very high during August and September with minimal days of rain. This warm late summer and early fall period guaranteed fantastic ripening and produced outstanding quality.

Vineyard "COLTASSALA"
Winemaking The grapes were all harvested by hand and collected in boxes holding from 33 to 44 lb, after which they were destalked and very lightly crushed. Under constantly controlled temperatures the grapes macerated in ideal conditions. The grapes first fermented in their own yeast at temperatures between 80 and 86°F for 14 days. During this phase, they were automatically punched down twice a day to draw out their finest qualities. After macerating on their skins for a further 10 days, the malolactic fermentation started. At the end of winter 1999 the wine was run off into Allier oak barriques where it will be left to age for about 18 months.
