Donatella Cinelli Colombini - Fattoria del Colle

Cenerentola DOC Orcia

    • Description :

      The DOC Orcia wine region was created in 2000 in Tuscany between the Brunello di Montalcino and Vino Nobile regions. There are similarities between the wine and the young woman in the fairy tale: both have two stepsisters, more famous and richer than them, and in the case of the Cenerentola DOC Orcia they are two neighboring wine regions for the Brunello and Nobile wines. To produce the Cenerentola wine, Sangiovese and Foglia Tonda grapes are used, and the latter is an old indigenous variety that was abandoned about a century ago and then rediscovered by Donatella. After temperature-controlled fermentation in stainless steel tanks the wines ages for 12 months in 5 hl French oak tonneaux and in small barrels.
