Named for a sun-treatment colony there, the Colonia vineyard was the fruit of a difficult replanting projet begun in 1966 by Domenico Poggiali and his son Giuseppe, who worked on it until the late 1970s; its very rocky soils led to the project’s abandonment in the mid-1980s. Grandson Giovanni Poggiali took it up again in 1991, and together with his father and grandfather, finally completed the planting of the vine shoots in 1993. One year later, Domenico died, which imprinted on the vineyard a three-generation symbolic value. The first crop was brought in 1997, but only 2006 was the first vintage bottled, without any denomination, which made the wine even more unique.
Intense ruby red color.
Spicy aromas with earthy, mineral, tobacco and pleasant wild berry notes.
On the palate, it has intense tannins needed for ageing the high concentration of the regional components typical to Fèlsina and Poggio a Rancia.

Felsina

Fèlsina. A name reaching back to Etruscan times. A feeling that infuses the air, in harmony with the quality of the light, with the earth’s scent and the fragrance of the breezes, with the march of the seasons and night time silences. Before the eye...
