The great elegance of Volpaia's wines are due to the estate's high altitude and very particular terrain. Thanks to the wide excursion in temperature between day and night, the grapes ripen slowly allowig the wine to develop a complex and elegant nose. Coltassala is produced only from the Sangiovese and Mammolo grapes cultivated in the vineyard bearing its name.

The producer

Volpaia is an 11th Century fortified village which has been entirely restored and devoted to the production of wine. Something that has been going on there since 1172! In 2000 The Wall Street Journal named Volpaia one of the seven wonders of Italy and, in fact, every year it attracts innumerable visitors. Local traditions are very much respected and around Volpaia they grow mainly Sangiovese grapes, but they do use the latest technology. Over the years, in an almost ideal location, they planted and later transferred various Sangiovese clones they collected and nurtured with the utmost care in a special vineyard. Volpaia’s high altitude, special terrain and state of the art technology all contribute to the special quality of its wines, bestowing on them a unique elegance.
