Smoke and coffee aromas give way to flavors of black cherry and plum in this smooth, stylish red. Supple and polished, with firm yet well-integrated tannins and a lingering finish. Drink now through 2018.óB.S.

Other text
The estate of Castello ColleMassari is situated in the foothills of Mount Amiata, at 320 m asl and oriented towards the Tyrrhenian coast. It enjoys a very favourable microclimate of consistent ventilation and strong thermal excursions. The farm extends over some 1,200 hectares, with 110 hectares of vineyards, 60 of olive groves and 400 hectares of mixed crop. The remaining area is woodlands and the whole farm is surrounded by a state forest covering some 1,200 hectares. In the steep and hilly vineyards with an average fifteen percent incline, vines are trained to Cordone speronato, or, alternatively, to Doppio Guyot and bring about yields around 6 tons per hectare. During the harvest, great care is taken in selecting the grapes, first on a vibrating table and secondly on a tapis roulant. The agricultural estate is run according to the criteria of organic farming, guaranteed and certified by ICEA.
