Chianti Superiore, this is the name of a superior type of Chianti with respect to the normal one, because it is produced from vines that are not very productive and with higher quality requisitions.
Fattoria del Colle has always produced Chianti until in 1997 the new superior type was born and Donatella Cinelli Colombini decided to wager on it using the grapes from the best vineyards and producing a wine able to tell the Tuscan tradition. She had a new label designed with three goblets, symbol of the village of Trequanda where Fattoria del Colle is found. A label with strong colours that recalls the banners from mediaeval tournaments.
With 2018 comes the first Chianti Superiore biologico (organic) from Fattoria del Colle that is richer in aromas thanks to the cold nights and sunny days in September.
