OUR PRODUCTS

The nature of Collazzi’s soils, sandy and clayey, rich in limestone, consisting of stone, and not excessively fertile, has led to the choice of planting mainly Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Petiti Verdot grapes and, only partly, the traditional Sangiovese. This varietal choice, together with the temperate microclimate of the area, allow to obtain charming, fruity and complex wines.

The vineyards, planted at a density of more than 6,150 plants per hectare, use training systems such as the Guyot and cordons, with a very reduced load of buds, in order to guarantee grapes of great quality and concentration.

Ferro

Toscana IGT

It was the power of this vine and its unique aroma that inspired the creation of this wine
originated only by the Petit Verdot. Although it is always considered a loyal ally in the creation of a blend of excellence, we have made it the only protagonist in order for it to stand out.
Rich,
charming, with incredible longevity and aromatic freshness, it is suited for a long refinement in French Oak wood. New wood in order to complete its structure and enhance its perfumes.
It is from a unique vineyard, from where you dominate the Duomo of Florence with incredulous wonder.

Collazzi

Toscana IGT

The different varieties of grapes used for the production of Collazzi are harvested and vinified separately. The bunches are selected by hand on the vibrating selection table in order to eliminate any smaller foreign body, such as ruined grapes or leaves.
The fermentation in stainless steel tanks at temperatures below 30°C is followed by a period of maceration for 18 days. The malolactic fermentation takes place in barriques
(50% new, 50% second passage). The refinement in wood of 18 months takes place in the underground cellar of Collazzi, at a natural temperature of 15°C. The wine is refined in the bottle for a further 12 months. The elegance and aromatic complexity of Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc combined with the opulence of Merlot and the intensity of Petit Verdot create this magnificent wine. The first vintage produced was 1999.

Libertà

Toscana IGT

The 2008 harvest i salso used for the production of "Libertà", a charming red wine with grapes harvested from the youngest vineyards of our splendid estate. This wine expresses a great balance between soft tannins of Merlot, the spiciness of Syrah and the elegant vivacity of Sangiovese.
We wanted to call this wine Libertà (in English “Freedom”) as this word was inserted in 1376 in the coat of arms of the family then owner of Collazzi.
The use of this word was authorized for having fought bravely for the freedom of the city of Florence from the invader.

I Bastioni

Chianti Classico D.O.C.G

Since 2002 in Collazzi we also produce “Bastioni”, a Chianti Classico produced with grapes harvested from 7 hectares registered in the DOCG list in the adjacent town of San Casciano, facing south/southwest, on stone-rich and well draining soils.
Bastioni combines the characteristics of elegance and pleasantness of Sangiovese, the main vitigno
vine, with the roundness and power brought to the wine by small portions of Merlot and Malvasia Nera, or Black Malvasia.
Vinified with techniques similar to the Collazzi, Bastioni imposes itself for a unique personality: thick, ripe tannins that give complexity and character to this wine which is refined in barriques for 12 months.

Otto Muri

Toscana IGT

The desire to make a great white wine too was in the air for many years. After careful testing we have identified the Fiano variety as the most interesting among the many varieties that are grown in Tuscany. The name Otto Muri recalls the eight terraces and their walls that they used to create on that piece
of land.
Vinified with all the care and attention as Collazzi usually do, we have obtained an extremly elegant, long-lived, thick wine. Aged for several months on the lees, it acquires a more refined color and an incomparable complexity. Its elegance and its power make it an exceptional wine.

OTHER PRODUCTS

Collazzi

Extra Virgin Olive Oil

From the olive groves of Collazzi located in the municipalities of Impruneta and Scandicci, areas renowned for their temperate climate and for the lands very suited to a quality olive grove.
At Collazzi only a few hectares are vineyards; most of the property is dedicated to the cultivation of the olive tree, which, in addition to producing an extraordinary product,
characterizes the landscape of the Estate and the surrounding Florentine hills in a unique way. The color is intense green. The aroma is fruity, typical of fresh olives. The flavor is delicate and intense at the same time.
Finish with a sweet hint of freshly picked artichoke. Frantoio and Morellino are the two varieties of olives that produce most of our oil. Frantoio:
fruity aromas and intense green hue, while Morellino is unmistakably soft and pulpy. The harvest takes place from the end of October to mid-November, the olives are pressed immediately after harvesting. Before being tasted, the oil rests for a couple of weeks in old terracotta jars.
