  • Winemaker Notes 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.

  • Tasting Notes The color of this wine is an intense ruby red with an aroma of red fruit and berries. With flowery undertones, and a harmonious and very agreeable flavor.

    To be served at a temperature of 16-18° C, it is advised to open the wine one hour prior to serving. This wine is accompanied well by first courses, roasts, cold meats and cheese.
  • Vineyard Medium consistency layered, sandy, tuffaceous and clayey.
  • Vinification The alcoholic fermentation takes place in stainless steel vats at a controlled temperature (no higher than 30° C), the grapes are crushed and they must re-passed over the grape dregs. The fermentation and maceration process takes between 14-16 days. Following on the maceration of the grape skins, the wine is drawn from the vats with a light pressing of the remaining skins and seeds.
