Collection

The Collesano Collection celebrates the Tuscan winemaking tradition and the passion of the Castellani family for Art and Nature. The Andrea Collesano's evocative graphics are associated with the most famous Tuscan wines, selected and aged in Castellani winery cellars, wines of great value created to accompany the finest cuisine.

Tasting note

Colour: Intense ruby red colour.
Bouquet: Rich plum and bramble fruit flavours and a slight hint of cherries followed by a characteristic scent of violets, strawberries and pepper.
Taste: Red fruits mingles with sweet woody notes. Warm, the nice texture is characterized by vigorous but delicate tannins. The slight aging in wood gives the wine a pleasant feel of toasted coffee and vanilla.

Vinification

Made with grapes selected from Castellani's coastal vineyards characterized by the typical sandy, clayey and calcareous soil. To produce this premium Tuscan wine we follow the old traditional vinification method: completely mature grapes are harvested from vineyards and immediately processed in our cellar where the fermentation process takes place at controlled temperature. A prolonged maceration with the skins follows for at least 10/15 days. After malolactic fermentation a portion of the wine is refined in wood for six months, the remaining part remains in steel tanks for a least one year. The two different cuvee are blended before the bottling.
