Cinelli Colombini, a unique winery made entirely by women and their 2016 Brunello di Montalcino Wine
What a winery, what a team, and what a wine. The all-female production and creation team behind the magnificent Cinelli Colombini Prime Donne Montalcino wine is nothing short of inspiring. While the 2015 vintage was another immense year, Filippo Bartolotta, Mamablip’s fine Italian wine expert, shares his thoughts with us on why the 2016 vintage goes a step beyond the quality, the aromas, the intensity of past vintages.
If you love learning about the Montalcino wine estates and the family histories that bind so many wine-making families to these quintessential Tuscan vineyards, then an exploration of the Cinelli Colombini family is absolutely just what the wine doctor ordered. The Cinelli Colombini family has over 400 years of wine-making experience in the Montalcino region, and today’s generations, Donatella and her daughter Violante, ensure that quality, tradition, and reliability are part of the sublime Brunello di Montalcino equation in every single bottle they produce in Montalcino.
Produced from a single grape varietal, the majestic Sangiovese, the Prime Donne 2016 vintage from Cinelli Colombini is a wine with a great aging future, as Filippo will explain. Structure, fruits, tannins….this vintage of Brunello di Montalcino supersedes some pretty high standards for top-quality Brunello selections. Come check it out with Filippo and Mamablip for another round of Brunello di Montalcino tastings from the heart of Tuscany.
