The estate of Castello ColleMassari is situated in the foothills of Mount Amiata, at 320 m asl and oriented towards the Tyrrhenian coast. It enjoys a very favourable microclimate of consistent ventilation and strong thermal excursions. The farm extends over some 1,200 hectares, with 110 hectares of vineyards, 60 of olive groves and 400 hectares of mixed crop. The remaining area is woodlands and the whole farm is surrounded by a state forest covering some 1,200 hectares. In the steep and hilly vineyards with an average fifteen percent incline, vines are trained to Cordone speronato, or, alternatively, to Doppio Guyot and bring about yields around 6 tons per hectare. During the harvest, great care is taken in selecting the grapes, first on a vibrating table and secondly on a tapis roulant. The agricultural estate is run according to the criteria of organic farming, guaranteed and certified by ICEA.

Food pairing
Goes well with all fish preparations, particularly with antipasti, ideal as aperitif.

Producer
The sister and brother Maria Iris and Claudio Tipa, who have always shared their passion for nature and great wines, fulfilled their dream creating a “Domaine in Tuscany.The ColleMassari Domaine comprises today three estates: from 1998 Castello di ColleMassari, Grattamacco since 2002 and the Poggio di Sotto Estate since 2011. Castello ColleMassari Was founded in 1998 and is part of the Montecucco DOC area in Upper Maremma, a territory which is ideal for the growing of Sangiovese, and situated between the DOCG areas of Brunello di Montalcino and Morellino di Scansano.The first vintage produced was 2000. Grattamacco Was founded at the end of the 70s in the DOC area of Bolgheri where the growing of Cabernet Sauvignon in this particular region gained great popularity.The first vintage produced was 1982 as a result of blending Cabernet Sauvignon with Merlot and Sangiovese. Poggio di Sotto Founded at the end of the 80s and situated in the territory of Montalcino, first DOCG in Italy, and home of the famous Brunello.The first vintage produced was the 1991 harvest and within a short time the winery distinguished itself for its wines of great elegance and complexity. Alinghi ColleMassari as Official Supplier accompanied Alinghi during the victorious conquest of the Americas Cup in the two editions of Auckland 2003 and Valencia 2007, promoting Italian wine worldwide with the products from its Tuscan Estates.
