Grown on hillside vineyards in the southern part of Tuscany. The soil is calcareous and well-drained.
Grape maceration for 7 - 8 days in stainless steel tanks at controlled temperatures between 75˚-77˚F. After a malolactic fermentation, the wine ages in French oak barrels for approximately 2 months.
Color: Ruby red.
Bouquet: Bright cherry and ripe dark berry fruit.
Taste: Supple, elegant and approachable.
Delightful with everything from appetizers to panninis, pizza, pasta, chicken, burgers and spicy cheeses.
The name Collepino translates to "hill of pine" which reflects the umbrella pine trees that surround the farmhouse on the vineyard property.
