Owner Sergio Marchetti belongs to an old patriarchal family of the 18th century. The family’s descendants have lived and farmed on this land for generations. In the 1980s, the owner of the lands gifted Fossacolle to the family when he sold the properties. Fossacolle is four hectares of vineyards in the medieval town of Tavernelle in southern Montalcino. This area benefits from the wind of nearby Maremma which creates a perfect climate to grow and to mature grapes. Sergio and his family manage the vineyards and his son-in-law, Adriano Bambagioni, with the help of his son Stefano, carry out all the enological and commercial aspects of Fossacolle.  



Vinous
  • v91

Deep red. Clean, fresh aromas of red fruit, tobacco and underbrush. Juicy and broad in scope with polished tannins that nicely let the ripe red fruit and herbal flavors flow on the rising long finish. A touch of alcohol-derived warmth becomes apparent on the back end, but this stays lively and fresh throughout.
