Colombaia is a 4 hectares vineyard south west exposed that round the house and the cellar. The soil is clay/calcar full of fossils shells.! Dante and Helena work the vineyard as a big garden, the byodinamic method allowed them to work in active perception, following the rhythm of nature. The activity in the cave is held in full respect of the fruit keeping intervention as little as possible, acting softly and sensitively. The fermentation is spontaneous with natural grape?s yeasts, working strictly in respect of the vintage. The extraction process is slow and careful, keeping the vital cycles of fermentation, without clarifying, filtering or stabilizing. Some vintages can have a tiny dose at the bottling SO2 added.
A little production of natural wine: from the old vineyard Colombaia ROSSO Toscano IGT (a unique wine, that represent our territory and vintage (different colour label for each vintage as a truly reflection of the season of each year), a COLOMBAIA white wine Bianco Toscano IGT made with Trebbiano and Malvasia grapes,and from the youngest vineyard the red wine VIGNA NUOVA. From the first juice of each vintanges COLOMBAIA produce a little quantities of Rose? and White ANCESTRALE (methode Ancestral), a unique fermentation in bottle without S02.
