Castello Di Volpaia Chianti Classico Riserva “Coltassala” DOCG 2005
2005 - Chianti Classico Riserva Coltassala has a medium garnet colour. Fragrant dark cherry, warm raspberry, violet and mint aromas on the nose. The medium bodied palate provides plenty of juicy fruit, crisp acidity and a medium level of fine grained tannins to support. A bit of oak is still apparent but the wine is still young and it should marry. Long finish. Drink now to 2020.
2009 - Chianti Classico Riserva Coltassala delivers a long array of berry tones wrapped within firm tannins and fresh acidity. It shows enormous persistency and an impressive finish that is silky and fresh. Five percent Mammolo is added to Sangiovese. Anticipated maturity: 2014 – 2022.

Coltassala, initially classified as a Supertuscan, is named after the homonymous vineyard where we grow indigenous clones of Sangiovese. Since 1998, when it became been possible to produce Chianti Classico with 100% Sangiovese, Coltassala has been affirmed by the international press as the archetype of the Chianti Classico.
