Small boutique Collemattoni wine estate
The Collemattoni is a small, family-owned, boutique winery known for its traditional winemaking style in the southern hills of Montalcino. You can see the majestic countryside and beautiful landscape that extends from Sant’ Angelo to the sea in Colle. It is named after the farmhouse, which is a trademark of the winery and dates back to the 17th century. Marcello Bucci focuses on winemaking that is traditional to the region but also uses the best modern technology.
Wines represent the Tuscan wine region
The company owns 11 hectares of vineyards in the five best areas in the southern and western part of Montalcino. The five vineyards are Orcia, Sesta, Cava, Fontelontano, and Collemattoni. Sangiovese is the main grape variety grown here and used to make Brunello di Montalcino Riserva DOCG, Bruno di Montalcino DOCG, Rosato Toscano IGT, Rosso di Montalcino DOC red, and rose wines. Every wine represents different shades and features of one of the world’s best wine region Tuscany.
Modern technology at the winery
The wine cellar was renovated in 2012, and advanced machinery was fitted to control all processes from fermentation to the bottling of wines. The best handpicked grapes are brought to the cellar and fermented in stainless steel vats. The ageing cellar has French and Slavonian oak barrels that give the required taste to the wines. There is a biomass fuelled heating system and solar panels that allow them to produce 80% of the electricity needed at the winery. Visit Collemattoni for exciting wine tasting activities.
