Donatella Cinelli Colombini Brunello Riserva 2015

Last unit sold for $159.00

Product description

Ruby red color with a nose rich in spices with hints of vanilla and nuances of ripe berries. Elegant and harmonious palate with good tannins.

95 Points, James Suckling

The ripe-cherry, flower and hot-stone aromas are very attractive. Full body. Dense and layered with a beautiful center palate and intensity. Cedar and light dried-flower character shows through as well. Try after 2022.

The Donatella Cinelli Colombini 2015 Brunello di Montalcino caps long years of careful study and experimentation. When I think back to what this wine tasted like, say, 10 years ago, I notice that the ongoing stylistic tweaks faithfully reflect the general evolution of the appellation. This wine is very much a symbol of a united move toward more streamlined and delicate expressions obtained with winemaking techniques that reflect a more traditional and Tuscan ideal. The bouquet opens to delicate flowers and violets with wild cherry and bitter almond. The level of toast and spice has been ratcheted down quite considerably. The results are polished, clean and bright.

Complex and harmonious, this red evokes cherry, plum, earth, tar and wild herb flavors. Bright and solidly built, with a long finish echoing fruit, mineral and underbrush notes. Best from 2023 through 2042.
