The Titolato Colombaia is an estate-bottled single vineyard blend: 90% Sangiovese, 10% Canaiolo and other indigenous red varietals. Fruit from Falchini’s Colombaia vineyard, located in the rolling hills of Siena, near the city of San Gimignano went through a long, cool fermentation before it aged three to four months in oak casks.
Titolato Colombaia is typically released late, after a few months bottle rest, to achieve a characteristic smoothness and balance. The 2016 shows round, soft, charming character with delicate, mildly spicy nuance and good structure. Its weight and charming nature make it an ideal accompaniment to a wide range of Italian dishes: this Chianti would be happy on a table with heavy antipasti and pasta, roast poultry and meat, or nutty cheeses. Like the rest of Falchini’s wines, it is exceptionally good value.
