Almost 7 miles east of the Mediterranean Ocean and 57 miles southwest of Florence, Rubbia al Colle is nearly in the heart of the vast Maremma region – a part of legendary Tuscany.
AT A GLANCE
Rubbia al Colle vineyards are in two tracts. Podere Le Pulledre skirts a fertile valley floor where vines flourish in clay soil with deep sand layers, warm climate, and significant diurnal temperature swings. Podere La Rubbia is located on a hillside with a warm and windy climate. Soils are clay and calcareous with stony sediment. The two vineyards are quite different and exemplify the micro-regions that give Maremma its rich agricultural heritage.
Rubbia al Colle, on the Arcipelago Muratori estate, is dedicated to red wines, especially Sangiovese, and including Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah and Petit Verdot.
