The Colonia, which take the name from the vineyard itself, was a new wine made from a single parcel that was planted in 1993. The first vintage released was the 2006, way before even the “Gran Selezione” appellation was introduced
Tasting 2007: The 2007 Colonia is huge. Dark red cherries, flowers, spices, leather and tobacco flow effortlessly from this big, large-scaled wine. The French oak is quite noticeable in the Colonia, separating it from the rest of the Felsina lineup. A huge, opulent finish laced with tar, smoke and licorice rounds out this stylish, expressive Riserva. Colonia is 100% Sangiovese from the highest part of the Rancia vineyard. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2025.
