Coltassala, Chianti Classico Gran Selezione DOCG
"Aromas of underbrush, toasted oak and dark spice emerge on this firmly structured wine. It’s rather austere, evoking dried black cherry, cranberry, star anise and espresso framed in racy acidity. Taut, close-grained tannins grip the finish."
“... remarkable purity, precision and nuance, all in an energetic, translucent style ...cedar, tobacco and lifted floral notes ... The 2013 Coltassala is one of the finest wines I have ever tasted at Volpaia. Don't miss it."
The Wine Advocate
“The 2013 Chianti Classico Riserva Coltassala is a tame and polished wine that shows an elegant and streamlined disposition. The wine glides cleanly over the palate with bright berry tones followed by wet earth, pressed rose and balsam herb..."
