Donatella Cinelli Colombini - Casato Prime Donne

Brunello di Montalcino Riserva DOCG

    • Description :

      The regular vinification process lasts 16 days. Maceration of the grape skins occurs during the entire fermentation and post-fermentation period. The wine is aged in barriques in the beginning, then in 5-7 hl barrels, and they finally rest in 30-40 hl oak barrels. Carlo Ferrini's influence as consulting enologist is evident in this Tuscan style wine that shows power, elegance and persistence.

      Grape varieties :

      Sangiovese (Brunello)

      Altitude :

      220m ASL

      Alcohol :

      14%

      Tasting notes :

      Bright and intense ruby-red color. Complex and intense nose with hints of ripe red jammy fruit, spice, vanilla, black pepper and tobacco. It has an intense yet balanced palate with great structure and a nice richness in polyphenols. A powerful "big” wine.
