The vintage began with a hot and then very rainy spring until mid-June, followed by a hot and dry summer with high water stress on the vines. A heavy rain in mid-September, followed by a lowering of the temperature, allowed the grapes to ripen perfectly.

History of wine

Coltassala, the archetype of the contemporary Chianti Classico.
Despite its original classification as Vino da Tavola, Coltassala was immediately recognized by the international press as a Super Tuscan.
The defining features of Coltassala went on to set the standard for a revised specification of Chianti Classico. Coltassala has surpassed the categorization it helped define and is now proudly classified as a DOCG Chianti Classico Gran Selezione
