Donatella Cinelli Colombini Brunello Di Montalcino D.O.C.G 2006 750ml

Donatella Cinelli Colombini Brunello Di Montalcino D.O.C.G

95 Points "Highly Recommended" Wine Spectator: A savory style, with salty licorice, cherry, plum, herb and undrebrush aromas and flavors. Big, yet balanced in its oversized way, with a terrific aftertaste of saline and licorice.

Donatella Cinelli Colombini owns two wineries, one in Montalcino and one in Trequanda near Montepulciano. The Colle in Trequanda is in the Chianti and DOC Orcia regions. The 23-hectare estate includes a country inn. The technologically advanced winery occupies the medieval sixteenth century villa where the Vin Santo is still made in the loft that rises high above the vineyards and groves to offer spectacular panoramic views. Located in Montalcino are the 19 hectares of vineyards of the Casato Prime Donne winery.

This wine comes from the two small vineyards of 13 hectares each which surround the 16th century building, Casato “Prime Donne.” Among the barrels are frescoes of the history of Montalcino. This award-winning wine undergoes regular alcoholic fermentation lasting 15 days. The wine is aged for at least three and a half years in oak barrels and tonneaux.

A firm, dry version, dense with cherry, blackberry, tobacco and mineral aromas and flavors. Precise and vibrant, this cruises through the long aftertaste with complex fruit and spice notes. There's fine balance and grip.

The wine rated 95 by Wine Spectator was the 2006 Riserva. That should be made clear in your ad.

A fabulous young Brunello, this has so much going for it. The nose is very complex, showing intense aromas of strawberries, cherries, vanilla, spice and just a little Sangiovese funkiness. On the palate this is full-bodied and beautifully structured. Ripe, sweet fruit and spice flavors supported by a lively acidity lead to a long fruit and mineral-tinged finish, with fine tannins and a hint of oak in the background. Still a bit reserved, this is definitely one for the cellar. In three or four years time - once the secondary characteristics have emerged - this beauty could easily be a 94-95 pointer.
