A wonderful place, near Montalcino, on the Siena hills. The ideal place to launch the new V3Rs, the lightest monocoque frame ever produced by Colnago. Journalists of the best European magazines have tried it on a technically perfect course, with some piece of gravel road, on those roads that have made the beautiful Eroica (event reserved for vintage bikes) and the “Strade Bianche”, the classic race which opens the racing season of the highest category of cyclists.
The location of the presentation is amazing, the Ciacci Piccolomini winery in Aragon of Castelnuovo dell’Abate (Si), a small village rich in classical tradition and the pride of the made in Italy. Known for the excellent quality of its Brunello (one of the most sought after and valuable wines in the world) it exports its products, including an excellent olive oil, all over the globe.
V3Rs has therefore been able to express its full potential in a practically perfect environment, made up of continuous ups and downs, and dirt roads, a complete mix from the technical point of view. Journalists, who were able to test the great balance that characterizes this lightweight, vibrant, compact and very precise frame, were enthusiastic. “C64 remains our flagship, the artisan frame – said Ernesto Colnago -, with V3Rs we wanted to satisfy market demands, the current trend that requires products with a racing soul without compromise”.
