In the finish, the spice tones merge with a pleasant fruity note. All in all a promising drop at a very attractive price! SUPERIORE.DE

      "Very rich, dark ruby red. In the nose after fine wood spice and ripe raspberries, cherries, forest fruits, some liquorice in the aftertaste. On the palate it opens beautifully, juicy and clear, handy tannin until the final, delicate post-drying." Falstaff

      "Cherry, leather, iron and earth flavors shout Sangiovese, yet there is a saline element too. Linear, dry and persistent. Shows fine balance." Wine Spectator

      "Aromas of cherries and watermelon follow through to a medium body, light tannins and a fresh finish. From organically grown grapes." James Suckling

      "The bouquet is savory yet slightly restrained in its youthful state, as notes of crushed raspberry give way to peppery floral and herbal tones, with a hint of spiced orange. On the palate, silky textures flood the senses with pure cherry and wild berry, as saline-minerals and fine tannins slowly settle in, kept lively through balanced acidity. The finish is long and structured with saturating dried red fruits resonating, turning more toward the savory spectrum, as youthful tannins clench the senses. The 2016 Colle Massari Montecucco Rosso Riserva is a blend of 80% Sangiovese with equal parts Ciliegiolo and Cabernet Sauvignon. It’s classic in every way and geared up for a long stay in the cellar." Vinous

    About the winemakersColleMassariTuscany | Maremma
    ColleMassari

    Claudio Tipa, together with his wife Maria and his sister Maria Iris, has built up a small wine empire from several branches scattered all over Tuscany, starting with the purchase of the Castello ColleMassari winery. With the winery, which is located in the northern Maremma in the Montecucco DOC between Montalcino and the vineyards of Morellino di Scansano, about 320 meters above sea level, the family not only fulfilled a long-cherished dream, but the new owners also meant a noticeable upgrading of the growing zone, which is excellently suitable for the cultivation of Sangiovese.

    Claudio Tipa, Sicilian by birth and president of the Consorzio Montecucco, has granted the Tuscan parade variety, which has emerged from selections in cooperation with the University of Pisa, a lion's share of about 80 percent among the red grapes in the vineyards. Vermentino has a similar importance among the white grape varieties. Until today ColleMassari has gained an excellent reputation also beyond the borders of the Maremma. So, it is no surprise that the wine guide Gambero Rosso has chosen the exemplary producer site as "wine estate of the year" in 2014.

    After acquiring the estate, the passionate owners not only purchased additional land, but also undertook a complete restructuring of the business. The vineyards and the cellar were thoroughly modernized with considerable financial means. The estate is located in an area characterized by a particularly favorable microclimate with good ventilation and strong temperature fluctuations. The steep vineyards are cultivated according to the traditional methods of the cordon or double Guyot system. From the beginning, the winery has worked according to the principles of certified organic viticulture.

    In the imposing cellar, the grapes and must are processed on four levels without pumps or other mechanical aids. The top cuvées are fermented in 1,000-liter conical wooden vats and only processed manually. All other wines complete the fermentation process in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks. Not least due to optimal conditions in the plots and in the cellar, the Tipa family's wines, which radiate a lot of personality, have continuously gained in quality. Most recently, the Riserve of the Montecucco Sangiovese Lombrone and the Montecucco Rosso ColleMassari were often among the most outstanding wines. Today, ColleMassari Spa includes, besides ColleMassari, the estates Grattamacco in the Bolgheri area and Poggio di Sotto in Montalcino. These also occupy top positions in their respective regions.
