DONATELLA CINELLI COLOMBINI
336 hectares on the hills facing Montalcino and its Brunello, Chianti Classico and the area of Nobile di Montepulciano. A crossroads of great red wines. A land that gives birth to white truffles and an extraordinary extra virgin olive oil, inherited by Donatella Cinelli Colombini in 1998. Currently at Fattoria del Colle we grow 160 hectares of cereal crops, 6 hectares of olive groves and 17 hectares of vineyards with Sangiovese, Merlot, and Traminer varieties as well as Foglia Tonda an old autochthonous vine abandoned for more than a century, that we have re-launched. The Colle’s altitude at 204 m above sea level and the great difference in temperature between day and night due to the vicinity of the “Crete Senesi” determine the particular wealth of aromas in the wines of this area that are intense, complex and extremely fine.
“Flavors of ripe cherry, leather and earth pick up some peppery elements. Full, mouth-coating tannins lend support. The finish is moderately long. Sangiovese and Merlot.” – Bruce Sanderson, 2017
