Year: 2017

A record year for heat and drought throughout the growing season. This condition presented extremes which began early bud break in the vineyard followed by a spring frost over late April. The frost effected the lower portions of the Volpaia estate. Spring and summer months were dry with higher than average temperatures. Rainfall in mid-September helped the grapes achieve complete ripeness of tannins and other phenolic compounds despite low yields

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
