The name of this wine is linked to the area where we planted the first grapes from which it is produced: a narrow and long hill surrounded by many lime trees, with a unique and fantastic view of our largest vineyard, “La Prà” (over 42 hectares). Hence the name: “Colle” means “hill” and “dei Tigli” means “with lime trees”. Colle dei Tigli can be visited during a guided tour of our vineyards.
