  • 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 and deep ruby red. The extremely fine and elegant aroma is one of red fruit and berries. It has a long lasting and persistent flavor with a very pleasant aromatic aftertaste.

    To be served at a temperature of 16-18° C. For an even greater appreciation of this wine it is advised to decant it into a crystal decanter prior to serving. This wine pairs well with mature Tuscan cheeses, first courses, red meats and roasts.
