Brunello di Montalcino Progetto Prime Donne Docg 2016

Starting from: 47,50


2016 is the vintage of deep red wines. The Brunello Prime Donne by Donatella Cinelli Colombini expresses her philosophy of returning to the origins of the denominations!

At the moment of the harvest the ripening was perfect both in the skins and in the grape pulp.

Sangiovese grapes able to produce long lasting, deep and complex wines. Wines of great elegance, with silky tannins and great harmony.  Wines similar to those that Donatella learnt to love as a young woman with her grandfather Giovanni Colombini and that in fact have been vinified like long ago: in small unlined concrete vats, using autochthonous yeasts and with the punching down of the skins.

Brunello Prime Donne is the symbol of the first Italian winery with an all female staff, Casato Prime Donne in the North West region of Montalcino.

The Prime Donne project, to which this wine refers, began in 1998, when Donatella created her new estate. She wanted to reaffirm women’s talent in wine making and in wine tasting in a moment when they had few opportunities to express themselves.

A panel of 4 female international super wine tasters was chosen to select this wine: Two masters of wine the British Rosemary George and Swedish Madeleine Stenwreth, the German wine store owner Astrid Schwarz and one of the best Italian sommeliers Daniela Scrobogna.

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 2016 vintage has been one of the best vintages ever seen, rated 5stars. In particular the Brunello Prime Donne from this year has been produced in a small number of bottles, just 6.000, so as to exalt at best the unique characteristics.
