La Collina Winery  

The hilltop estate of La Collina is located 10 miles west of Florence, near the tiny village of Limite Sull’Arno.  Iacopo Morganti lovingly tends the 45 acres at La Collina with organic farming techniques, consistently producing wine of remarkable character and surprising approachability.

Viticultural Details

The vineyards are planted in deep, fossilized clay soils on the southern slope of Montelbano at an elevation of 900 feet above sea level.
