Brunello di Montalcino Docg 2017 - Donatella Cinelli Colombini

Donatella Cinelli Colombini's Brunello di Montalcino DOCG is made, as the regulations require, from 100% Sangiovese grapes. The vineyards, 10 of the 16 hectares available, are selected annually for the production of the noble Brunello. They are located in the northern area of Montalcino, the cooler one. The one that has benefited most from global warming. They are located about 225 metres above the sea, where breezes help make the summer heat less stifling. All the work in the vineyard is traditional and largely manual. Starting with the harvest, which is planned with precision to prevent the grapes from spending too much time in the heat before being sent for processing. This speed allows the quality of the fruit to be maintained intact.Then vinification in small steel or non-glassified cement vats, using a very traditional and delicate technique. Maturation in wood takes place in tonneaux and then, later, in large casks. In total, the future Brunello remains in wood for at least 2 years, but very often this maturation is close to three. After all, this is a noble wine that will last a long time. Properly stored in the cellar, in fact, can easily give great satisfaction for over 20 or 30 years. After all, a wine like this should only be uncorked on special occasions.

There are women destined to make a difference. One of these is undoubtedly Donatella Cinelli Colombini. A woman of wine, a successful entrepreneur and in some respects the very icon of the most beautiful and noble Tuscany. One that enjoys a long history that is lost in the centuries, made up of great families, great estates and above all excellent wines. In short, the Tuscany that every good wine lover likes. The Donatella Cinelli Colombini Winery, founded in 1998, has two estates: Fattoria del Colle in Trequanda, reacquired in the early 20th century after three hundred years, and Casato Prime Donne in Montalcino, used by Donatella's ancestors for hunting and to bring brides on their honeymoons, and which today can count on an entirely female staff.

    The Donatella Cinelli Colombini 2015 Brunello di Montalcino caps long years of careful study and experimentation. When I think back to what this wine tasted like, say, 10 years ago, I notice that the ongoing stylistic tweaks faithfully reflect the general evolution of the appellation. This wine is very much a symbol of a united move toward more streamlined and delicate expressions obtained with winemaking techniques that reflect a more traditional and Tuscan ideal. The bouquet opens to delicate flowers and violets with wild cherry and bitter almond. The level of toast and spice has been ratcheted down quite considerably. The results are polished, clean and bright. Some 42,000 bottles were made (and were released in January 2020).

  • James Sucking 95

    The ripecherry, flower and hotstone aromas are very attractive. Full body. Dense and layered with a beautiful center palate and intensity. Cedar and light driedflower character shows through as well. Try after 2022.

  • Wine Enthusiast 92

    Complex and harmonious, this red evokes cherry, plum, earth, tar and wild herb flavors. Bright and solidly built, with a long finish echoing fruit, mineral and underbrush notes. Best from 2023 through 2042. 3,500 cases made, 1,000 cases imported. — BS

  • Wine Spectator 94

    Violet, wild berry, face powder and a whiff of eucalyptus are front and center on this fragrant red. It's elegant and linear, offering ripe Marasca cherry, licorice and dried mint framed in lithe polished tannins. It's already accessible but will also offer several more years of sipping pleasure. Drink through 2027. KERIN O’KEEFE
