They specialize in the famous local wines of Tuscany—Chianti and Chianti Classico—with an extended vineyard range that stretches into other fantastic Italian regions, including Abruzzo, Umbria, Puglia, and Sicily.
Currently run by the fourth generation of the family, Coli was started in 1926 by Pietro and Giovanni Coli. Together they established a family wine business in the Chianti hills just outside the city of Florence, and soon began producing the popular, Sangiovese-based wines of the region: Chianti and Chianti Classico.
The reins continued to be passed down to the following generations through 1975, when the brothers Giampiero and Gianfranco Coli took over the winery. Today, Coli winery is still led by Giampiero Coli, surrounded by his children and nephews.
While tradition has always been important, Coli has also focused on innovative and forward-thinking upgrades to stay competitive in the modern market. As the years have passed, Coli worked hard to adopt the latest technology and become one of the most modern wineries in Tuscany.
Recent upgrades include renovating the facilities to allow for large-scale and high-quality wine production. The family has also expanded vineyard ownership to about 150 hectares of vineyards in the Chianti and Chianti Classico areas. Despite these changes, the Coli family has held fast to the founders’ spirit of combining tradition with everyday quality.
