wine producer


Region: Toscana


Colognole was founded in 1892 by Count Venceslao Spalletti of Emilia, who was then succeeded by sons Giambattista and Cesare. Increasingly from the 1920s, the estate gained a reputation for producing high-quality Tuscan wine, notably reds for laying down.
The winery underwent a transformative process in the 70s and 80s but re-established itself in the 90s as Azienda Agricola Colognole.


Overseen today by great-grandson Cesare Coda Nunziante, this large estate is divided into three vineyard groups: at Colognole, higher up on Monte Giovi, and lower down at Poggio Reale. The fact that all three vineyard groups are in such different locations and are at varying altitudes, ranging from 250 to 520 metres above sea level, allows for a much greater selection of grapes at harvest-time, and for experimentation with cloning and different grape varieties.
Their 27 hectares of vineyards grow mainly in Galestro soils (rocky, schistous clay soil)
and the estate produces around 120,000 bottles per year.
