Integrity, authenticity and audacity since 1349
I Colli estate is settled in the northern part of the province of Siena, in the townships of Monteriggioni and Castelnuovo Berardenga. I Colli’s land is characterized by a unique limestone (sedimentary rocks composed mainly by calcium carbonate), known as “Giallo di Siena”, worldwide famous also for the precious yellow marble that derives from it. Due to the high amount of stones in the soil and the altitude of around 350 meters (1150 feet), the sangiovese grape from these lands expresses its fresh and fruity taste and ample floral bouquets. I Colli is a hamlet built by the Bindi Sergardi at the end of the 1400s and has accompanied the family over the centuries. It is the most historical estate, passed on for 23 generations. It is located along the Via Francigena, the ancient pilgrimage road that connects Canterbury to Rome. It's a beautiful place with a strategic position: at I Colli Bishop Achille Sergardi hosted the embassy of Emperor Charles V (Holy Roman Empire XVI century) to negotiate a peace settlement for the city of Siena.
