I Collazzi Liberta IGT 2014/15
Appellation: I.G.T. Toscana
Grape variety: Merlot, Syrah and small quantities of Sangiovese.
Main Characteristics: Libertà is made with grapes from the Collazzi estate. The wine’s goal is to achieve an uncommon balance between the Merlot’s soft tannins, Syrah’s richness in spices and the elegant fragrance of Sangiovese.
The wine owes its name to a donation that the City of Florence made to eight local families, among which the former owners of Collazzi, who had valiantly fought for the city’s freedom.
Very deep, it tells of the excellent quality of the grapes
Aromas: Balsamic, typical of the main grape variety in the blend.
Palate: Round, pervasive, with sweet tannins, perfectly balanced. Complex, long, yet not overpowering
Food pairing: From appetizers to cold cuts, with steamy pasta dishes in meat sauces. Not to be forgotten, the pairing with seasoned cheeses, stewed meats or dry chocolate biscuits.
