Brunello di Montalcino Progetto Prime Donne Docg 2015

Clear

Brunello Prime Donne selection was produced for the first time with the 1993 vintage.
Donatella Cinelli Colombini had just then begun to create the estate that bears her name and that is characterized by the two wineries– Casato Prime Donne in Montalcino and Fattoria del Colle in Trequanda – with an entirely female staff. The attention to the role of women in wine led Donatella to observe that wine critics and curators of the Italian wine guides were, in 1998, all men.
She decided to reaffirm the importance of women’s taste in the choice of wine by creating the first Brunello selected by a female and international panel.

The group is today made up of: a wine store owner, a sommelier and two Masters of Wine: Astrid Schwarz, Daniela Scrobogna, Rosemary George MW, and soon to join them Madeleine Stenwreth MW.

During the past few vintages the tasters have always chosen the wine obtained from the grapes from the Ardita vineyard on the top of a hill at Casato Prime Donne, so this has become a CRU. The Ardita vineyard was planted in 2001 at 250 m above sea level and where the soil is rich in clay and limestone.

2015 has been an excellent vintage for Brunello, rated 5 stars, and apt for long cellaring and important occasions. Those who had a child in 2015 are fortunate and can keep a bottle for their wedding.

The Brunello Prime Donne 2015 is a small selection of just 6.000 bottles destined to high level restaurants and wine stores all over the world.

Obviously the Brunello Prime Donne is liked also by men and it gets excellent ratings for the international press, but this wine is also a flagship for the feminine world of wine.
