Winemaker Notes

Deep red color. Elegant, complex aromas of spicy balsamic and hints of ripe black fruits. Silky, rich, intense and full-bodied on the palate. The wine finishes with roundness and elegance from the beautifully balanced structure.
Blend: 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Cabnernet Franc, 20% Merlot, 5% Petit Verdot

James Suckling
A rich red, yet there’s underlying freshness and firmness for this ripe vintage. Lots of blackberry and blueberry character and chocolate underneath. It’s full-to medium-bodied with firm tannins and a pretty finish. Try after 2022.

The 2017 Collazzi is 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Cabernet Franc, 20% Merlot, 5% Petit Verdot, a blend that works so well here. Juicy black cherry, dark plum, mocha, grilled herbs, lavender and dried herbs all flesh out in this sumptuous, luscious wine.
RP 91
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
From a very hot vintage, the Collazzi 2017 Collazzi is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot and Petit Verdot. This is a generous and thickly layered Tuscan red that unfolds slowly to show blackberry, dried cherry, spice, tobacco, leather and grilled herb. Collazzi is the quintessential steak-and-potatoes wine with lots of dark fruit, smoke and a solid structure to pair with a hearty meal taken straight off the grill.

I Collazzi Villa Loggia Winery Image

Villa Collazzi is one of the most impressive estates in all of Tuscany. Set atop a hill located a few miles south of Florence on the old road to Volterra, it offers commanding views of the surrounding countryside. This architectural landmark was originally designed by Michelangelo in 1560 for his friend, Agostino Dini. It features two rows of loggias above a large courtyard enclosed on three sides and open on a fourth. The building remained incomplete for centuries until it was purchased by the Marchi family in 1933.  

Wine is grown on 62 acres, while the specialized cultivation of 297 acres of olive trees produces a precious extra virgin olive oil. Collazzi is also dedicated to the raising of bees that yields a small quantity of organic honey.

Villa Collazzi is currently run by three siblings from the Marchi family. During the last decade the Marchi brothers have invested heavily in the development of Collazzi's farming business, renewing the vineyards and restructuring the cellar, with the goal of producing excellent wines. 

At Collazzi the microclimate is normally warmer and drier than the surrounding area. Part of the estate lies in a natural amphitheater, with a perfect south-westerly exposure. The high amount of sun light and the high daily temperatures allow a prolonged, complete ripening of the farming products, consistently each year.

Legendary in Italy for its Renaissance art and striking landscape, Tuscany is also home to many of the country’s best red wines. Sangiovese reigns supreme here, as either the single varietal, or a dominant player, in almost all of Tuscany’s best.

A remarkable Chianti, named for its region of origin, will have a bright acidity, supple tannins and plenty of cherry fruit character. From the hills and valleys surrounding the medieval village of Montalcino, come the distinguished and age-worthy wines based on Brunello (Sangiovese). Earning global acclaim since the 1970s, the Tuscan Blends are composed solely of international grape varieties or a mix of international and Sangiovese. The wine called Vine Nobile di Montepulciano, composed of Prognolo Gentile (Sangiovese) and is recognized both for finesse and power.
