Falchini Titolato Colombaia
Produced from the property owned vineyard named Colombaia, this Chianti of the Senese Hills comes from a blend of Sangiovese (85%) and small percentages of other red grapes hand picked from the Colombaia estate in San Gimignano. This wine is fermented and stocked in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks. The maceration period is about 10/15 days long. After a brief passage in small oak barrels, this wine is further refined in the bottle for a few months. It then must pass the accurate examination of the Titolato Consortium before being sold. With it’s ruby red colour, it’s pleasantly rich appealing flavours of red berries and a taste that feels warm, intense, dry and velvety; this wine is the perfect example of a fine Chianti Colli Senesi.
