Brunello di Montalcino Docg 2016

Starting from: 39,50


Brunello is produced in Montalcino, the best place in the world to grow the Sangiovese variety. A grape grown in Montalcino for hundreds and maybe thousands of years. Thanks to the climate and the soil, it has taken on specific characteristics: it produce a low yield of grapes, with small clusters and small berries. For this reason it is possible to create, in Montalcino, a great red wine apt for a long ageing such as Brunello, using only one variety: Sangiovese.  The 2016 vintage has been awarded 5 stars!

In 2016 the ripening was perfect, one that every wine producer dreams of.

For Donatella Cinelli Colombini and the Casato Prime Donne winery 2016 was a return to tradition, vinifying Brunello in concrete tanks with mechanized punching down of the cap of grape skins. The return to tradition from long ago has coincided with a picking of the grapes based on a separation of the clusters according to their level of ripening. These are chosen one by one, by hand, in the vineyard as the old farmers used to do. A system that slows the harvesting times but allows the vinification of grapes that are all with the same character and later, the ageing in barrel or tonneaux most apt for the future Brunello. A “tailor made”  job done by master craftspeople who create works of art in a bottle

This is a dream of a wine so Donatella decided to produce 35.000 bottles.
