Description

Fattoria Calappiano, in Vinci, the territory of Montalbano represents a historical and architectural treasure of the De’Medici family of Florence. Built around 1500, it was commissioned by the Grand Duke Francesco I De’Medici and was one of the first examples of a Tuscan Farmhouse featuring wine-growing operations. The Farmhouse was later passed on to A. H. Savage Landor, grandchild of Walter Savage Landor, Shakespeare’s biographer. Inside the farmhouse, there are still paintings of distant civilizations, antique finds and memorabilia of his many travels in the East. Today the farm is owned by the Sensi family. Flagship of the company, the Collegonzi wine, produced from a selection of the best grapes, is the result of 10 years of research on a variety of Sangiovese clones to reach extreme quality and purity. It is a precious and sophisticated wine, full and structured, that inherited its characteristics from the soil rich in seashells and marine fossils, where the vines have their roots.

TASTING NOTES

The aromatic bouquet of wine is persistent and intense, quite subtle, has notes of ripe plums and nuances of various spices. The wine has a mature, full-bodied and balanced taste with resistant tannins and lively acidity, juicy notes of ripe strawberries and cherries, complemented by nuances of vanilla.
