Bolgheri DOC is a young denomination, where wine began production in the second half of the twentieth century and whose official recognition dates to 1994. Only a handful of years, yet enough to make this terroir one of the most important and appreciated among wine lovers worldwide.
The closest winery to the sea
The sea is the soundtrack of the closest winery to the coast in the Bolgheri appellation, a strategic location that yields unforgettable extraordinary wines.
Cabernet Franc, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon are the international varietals that bring a Mediterranean breeziness and volcanic minerality to red wines.
Tradition and modernity
The wines may be classical, but Tenuta Le Colonne interprets them with a millennial outlook, the consumers of the present and future – just cast a glance at the elegant contemporary labels.
From grapes to Bolgheri wines
Nearly 400 hectares, 64 of which devoted to vineyards that produce a perfectly balanced Bolgheri DOC, a Bolgheri Superiore DOC with all the requirements of a thoroughbred destined to develop over time, whose longevity is guaranteed by a spell in grand French oak barrels. And then there’s a Vermentino Toscana IGT and Rosato IGT, fresh, lively and a flexible fit for every occasion.
The Winery philosophy
Tenuta Le Colonne produces wines at one with the company philosophy, where concepts such as natural sustainable agriculture and upholding the highest cellar standards are steadfast principles. Thanks to the meticulous work in the vineyards, ever respectful of tradition, a passion for the land is a flavorful “ingredient” in the success of these wines. The same detail-oriented approach is also taken in the winery.
