Chianti Colli Senesi Wine

for this region?

Chianti Colli Senesi is the largest, and some say the finest, subzone of Chianti in the Tuscany region of central Italy. Surrounding the hills of the Siena province, part of this zone spills into Chianti Classico, which designates both its original vineyard area as well as what is considered its highest quality fruit source. Colli Senesi also extends to San Gimignano, Montepulciano and Montalcino (the latter two being where the other top Tuscan Sangiovese-based wines, Vino Nobile di Montepulciano and Brunello di Montalcino are produced). 

Chianti Colli Senesi is required to have a minimum 75% Sangiovese, which can be blended with Canaiolo, Colorino, Cabernet Sauvignon and/or Merlot. The white grapes Trebbiano and Malvasia have been banned from Chianti blends since 2006.

  • Castello di Monsanto Chianti Colli Senesi Monrosso 2013


    1st time for trying this offering of Monsanto chiantis. Generous fruit up front with a slight spice and zest note on the finish. Soft chewy tannins supported by good acidity give this a medium length finish. Great food wine. Drink now - Paul 88 poinys Read More

  • Fontaleoni 'Colli Senesi' Chianti 2012


    Reticent on the nose and herbal with aromas of dried graasses, hay and subtley spicy red fruits. Light, fresh and zesty in the mouth, this is laden with bright, clear and slightly sweet cherry fruit. Its a simple wine but round and yet bright in the mouth. Very refreshing and gaining some savory complexity on the backend, this goes down dangerou... Read More

  • Castello di Farnatella Chianti Colli Senesi 2010


    This starts on the elegant side with pretty notes of lean red cherry, clove and allspice, and a heart of flinty Earth and brambles. There's a nice little core of richness in the nose as well.The palate has plenty of lean red cherry fruit with dark notes of Earth, underbrush, and dried herbs. Aromatic and well balanced showing fine tannins and go... Read More

  • Fattoria Casabianca Chianti Colli Senesi Riserva 2005


    The color is a bit darker than your traditional Chianti, but somewhat lighter than your typical big bold cabs that have been pouring out of California the last decade or so. The nose is very interesting, with notes of rich, dark fruit, a good bit of licorice and some lovely dried herbs. The taste was a complete divergence from the nose, as you... Read More
