Ferro

I.G.T Tuscany

CLASSIFICATION
I.G.T Tuscany
VARIETY
100% Petit Verdot
FEATURES
Thanks to the Petit Verdot cultivated at Collazzi, it is possible to obtain a unique complexity and intensity.
The manual selection in the vineyard of every bunch, makes this Petit Verdot even more unique in its kind.
It was the 2010 harvest that allowed to discover the potential of the Ferro vineyard. Its power and unique aroma inspire the creation of the homonymous wine, originated exclusively from Petit Verdot. Although widely considered a loyal ally in the creation of a blend of excellence, we have made the Petit Verdot the only protagonist, thus ensuring it can distinguish itself.

Rich, charming, with incredible longevity and aromatic freshness, the wine lends itself to a long fermentation in fresh oak wood to complete the realization of this gem. Tasting Ferro is a true sensorial experience, with its intense color, a mature, velvety, and balanced taste, and an eternal and elegant finish.

The Villa

The majestic Villa I Collazzi stands at the heart of the estate, located on a rectangular terrace on top of a hill. The project is attributed to Santi da Tito, Michelangelo Buonarroti’s pupil. The entrance is lined with cypresses that lead to the Villa and its garden. The latter is divided in two terraces, one English-inspired and the other following the Italian-style. Inside the Villa are stunning paintings from the Renaissance period, along with a beautiful family chapel and a cellar with the oldest olive oil mill in Italy.
