Colledilà is the grand Chianti Classico cru with a complex structure and outstanding modern elegance. Pure Sangiovese, it exalts all the magnificent gifts of this varietal, and the limited volumes of the Colledilà vineyard render it all the more exclusive.
Ruby red color. Complex and intense bouquet of ripe red fruit, plums and flower scents. The entry is velvety and generous with delicate tannins. The fine texture and well-balanced acidity give the wine a long persistence on the nose and palate. Colledilà is one of the most representative wines of the terroir of Brolio.
The history of Italy cannot be told without including the prominent contributions of the Ricasoli family, who have produced wine since 1141. Ricasoli is documented as the oldest winery in Italy and the fourth oldest family business in the world.
The heart of the Ricasoli wine production comes from the Brolio castello, a magnificent castle located in the commune of Gaiole in Chianti, which was built as an outpost to defend Florence from the rival city of Siena.
Today, the wines are a reflection of the family’s nine hundred year dedication to quality winemaking and innovation at the Brolio estate.
This is sensational, with ultra fine tannins that melt into the wine. Such intense and beautiful fruit with cherries, peaches and lightly candied cherries. Some citrus, too. Very soft and creamy with wonderful polish. Beautiful center palate and a lovely finish. A song in the bottle. A little tight now. Hard to wait, but give it two or three years to open.
