Villa Collazzi is one of the most impressive estates in all of Tuscany. Set atop a hill located a few miles south of Florence on the old road to Volterra, it offers commanding views of the surrounding countryside. This architectural landmark was originally designed by Michelangelo in 1560 for his friend, Agostino Dini. It features two rows of loggias above a large courtyard enclosed on three sides and open on a fourth. The building remained incomplete for centuries until it was purchased by the Marchi family in 1933.  

 

WINEMAKER NOTES

Preserving the style of Collazzi, the color is intense and anticipates the beautiful quality of the wine. A set of aromas that blend from red fruits to citruses. Its structure, thick and silky tannin texture, make it particularly enjoyable.

Blend: 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Cabernet Franc, 20% Merlot, 5% Petit Verdot

 

CRITICAL ACCLAIM

JS96, James Suckling

"Lots of blackcurrant and mint on the nose with plums, too. It’s full-bodied with very integrated tannins that are chewy but beautiful and give length to the wine. Racy and solid."

 

WE93, Wine Enthusiast

"Camphor, blue flower, dark-skinned berry and French oak aromas come to the forefront on this full-bodied red. A blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot and Petit Verdot, the savory, elegantly structured palate features ripe blackberry, cassis, mocha and ground pepper. Firm, refined tannins and fresh acidity provide support and balance."
