Chianti “Colli Senesi”

The Antico Colle estate is located among the vast hills of the Tuscan countryside, at the heart of the green vineyards of Montepulciano’s Vino Nobile wine-growing area. Three generations of the Frangiosa family have dedicated themselves with boundless passion to the cultivation of their vines. Thanks to the continuity of knowledge passed down from father to son, the Antico Colle label was born, and is known for the production of remarkable wines.
