Wines and oils

The highest of the Chiantis

Due to its proximity to the Apennine mountain range, Chianti Rufina Docg is commonly referred to as the ‘highest of the Chiantis’, both in terms of average vineyard altitude and latitude, but also in terms of elegance and longevity.

Chianti Rufina Docg is the smallest of the additional Chianti Denominations, but also the oldest as its territory was delimited in 1716 with the Bando de’ Vini of Grand Duke Cosimo III de’ Medici.

Colognole is one of Chianti Rufina’s historic wineries, as well as one of the most prestigious in the area: it only makes wine from grapes grown on its 27 hectares of vines and produces an average of 120,000 bottles a year that are distributed in Italy and in the most important countries in the world, from Europe to Australia, from North America to the Far East.

For five generations, the Spalletti family has been dedicated to the cultivation of vines, particularly Sangiovese but also other varieties, some with white berries, which in recent decades have been part of the company’s experimental projects, always aimed at demonstrating the Rufina territory’s remarkable vocation for the production of great, elegant and long-lived wines.

A production of excellence from the Rufina hills, Extra Virgin Olive Oil has always represented one of the most exclusive and most appreciated products of the Colognole Agricultural Company; it is possible to taste it on request and, together with the owners, delve into the extraordinary characteristics of this millenary crop.
