Lara

The Wine

Lara is a combination of the winery’s first two wines Eola and Ramanto. By focusing on red blends they are able to produce wines that offer exceptional balance and fruit forward character. This approach however does not allow for the Montescudaio DOC thus they are labeled IGT.

The People

Colline Di Sopra’s upscale quality standards are motivated by their love and respect for the ecosystem of which they are part of. That is the reason their vineyard is organically certified and why they adopted renewable energy along with a high attention to water resources issue.
