Donatella Cinelli Colombini Brunello di Montalcino Prime Donne 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

This wine comes from four small vineyards of 18 hectares which surround a stone building built in the 16th century, Casato “Prime Donne.” Here the Brunello ages for at least two years in oak barrels and barriques. Over the barrels are frescoes showing the history of Montalcino.

Tasting Notes:

Colour dark ruby red that becomes garnet with ageing. Aroma full, rich, fine, recalling spices and small red fruits. Taste full, intense, harmonious and warm.
