Colline di Sopra is an organic winery founded in 2006 located in the Montescudaio DOC area 6 miles from the sea and 9 miles from Bolgheri, home of the original "Super Tuscan". The terroir here, which includes clay and marine sediment-rich soil layered with pebbles, is pretty magnificent for the cultivation of French as well as Italian varietals. The "Eola" is a blend of 50% Merlot. 40% Sangiovese and 5% each of Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah that beautifully illustrates why these varietals are a match made in heaven. Merlot's plush, silky fruit characters perfectly complement Sangiovese's earthy notes, dusty red fruits, and high acidity. Syrah adds a touch of pepper and spice while the Cabernet lends structure and brooding, black fruits. The resulting wine is truly greater than the sum of its parts.
The "Eola" is stainless-steel fermented and aged in order to showcase the wine's vibrant fruit flavors. Black raspberry, black cherry, and a hint of cassis take center stage on this medium-to-full-bodied effort, and the terroir really comes through in the form of mineral and herbal accents. A soft-mid-palate and bright acidity make this wine terrific on its own OR with a wide variety of foods - pizza, pasta, roast chicken, steak, and so much more!
