Donatella Cinelli Colombini is made up by women only as the first winery in Italy, a flagship for women in the wine business.
This Brunello di Montalcino shows warm aromas of ripe fruit, savory spice, tobacco and grilled herb. The wine is generous and full. There is plenty of primary fruit at the back that glues all these various elements firmly in place. The fruit is subtle and delicate in this vintage.
Given the nuanced and excellent quality of fruit in this vintage, this wine would have worked with even less oak in my opinion.
