I.G.T Tuscany

I.G.T Tuscany
Merlot 55%, Cabernet Franc 30%, Merlot 20%, Syrah 15%
Libertà is a blend of Merlot, Cabernet Franc, and Syrah. This wine expresses great balance between the soft tannins of Merlot, the aromatic complexity of Cabernet Franc and elegant spicy Syrah. The name Libertà derives from a gift that the city of Florence made to eight Florentine families including the then owners of Collazzi who fought valorously to free the city.
With the 2008 harvest begins the production of “Libertà”, Collazzi’s second wine. Libertà is a charming red wine with grapes harvested from the youngest vineyards surrounding our splendid estate. The Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Sauvignon grapes are harvested by hand, fermented in temperature-controlled vats that enhance the aromas of the Cabernet, and later refined in 225L barrels.

“Libertà” is an intense and vivid red, and the mouthfeel 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 (“Freedom”) as this word was added in 1376 to the previous owners’ coat of arms for having fought bravely against the invader for the freedom of Florence.

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.
