QUICK FACTS

A declassified Chianti Colli Fiorentini made with Sangiovese, Pinot Nero and Fogliatonda.

Fogliatonda is an antique and such a rare indigenous Tuscan variety that you can not even find the variety in greenhouses, and must be propagated by already existing vines.

THIS WINE’S STORY

Thomas Colella studied to be a photographer… and then in a change of heart, decided to join his father in his dream to make wine rather than sell the families fruit as they had always done.
