Colombaia is actually the Italian name for a small dovecot that you often can find on the roof of old Tuscan houses. But it is also the name of a very interesting wine producer in the southern part of Tuscany.
The vineyard is at the very end of a long dirt road and it is not easy to find your way there. But it is worth the effort. They make some excellent wine, one very interesting white wine and two elegant and classic reds (although they label them as IGT). And one very original sparkling rosé wine. It is one of the wineries that we often visit on our wine tours to Tuscany and Chianti.
