The Italian national soccer player Andrea Pirlo opened in 2007 with the help of his family, a small winery in the birthplace of his father in the village of Coler in the community Flero near Brescia.
After the Pirlo family has bought the vineyards, they set out to restore the original balance of nature and work up the surrounding land. The wines of the Pratum Coller line are the result of an environmentally friendly viticulture. The winery operates in a sustainable manner, so not only a great wine can be produced, but also the nature and vineyards can be protected.
Pratum Coller offers currently four different wines: the rosé Eōs, the white wine Nǐtǒr and the two reds Rěděo and Arduo.
The rosé wine Eōs is ideal as an aperitif. But it also goes well with light dishes. It is made from vines with an age of 30 years. The grapes are harvested at full maturity. The used grape varieties are Sangiovese, Barbera, Marzemino and a small amount of Merlot.
Nǐtǒr is a white wine with a pure taste, with typical flavors of Trebbiano di Lugana. It goes well with spicy and intense food.
Rěděo is a red wine of medium range. It is made from fully ripened grapes of Sangiovese, Merlot and Marzemino and a low proportion of Barbera. Maceration on the skins lasts at least two weeks at variable temperature. This is how the wine can draw the best flavors from the skins.
The red wine Arduo is the highest quality wine of the winery. It has a finely woven and elegant structure. Arduo is produced from ripe grapes of the varieties Merlot, Sangiovese and Marzemino with a small amount of Cabernet Sauvignon. The production is limited. After a long maturation in oak barrels the wine is bottled 18 months after the harvest.
