Collemattoni Brunello di Montalcino DOCG 2004

$111.00

“Delivers fabulous aromas of crushed raspberries, cherries and strawberries, with flowers and a hint of vanilla bean. Full-bodied, with a solid core of fruit and silky tannins. Dense and very long. A serious, powerful and complex red… This is the producer's best wine ever” 95 points Wine Spectator

“A little muddy and occluded on the nose. Very sweet start and then a great fan of rich compost aromas – most impressive! Not too hot on the finish despite the alcohol level. A bit like an elixir, it's so concentrated.” 17 points Jancis Robinson. Drink 2011-19

“A young Brunello that's turned in on itself, this yields little more than the black mineral earthiness of sangiovese tannins. Air brings up scents of porcini, sour cherry, iron and thyme… Candidate for long-term aging. 94 points Wine & Sprites April 2010 Year's best

“Mature on the nose with red berries, aromatic herbes and with an earthly sensation. Strong firm tannins, maybe a bit strong but with a certain promise of improvement thanks to a nice acid base.” Guida dei Vini d'Italia del Gambero Rosso 2010

Appellation: Denominazione di Origine Controllata e Garantita
Grape: Sangiovese
Density of plants: 4500 plants/ha.
Altitude: 350/400 m above the sea level

Vinification: removal of grape stalks, soft pressing, fermentation in stainless steel casks at controlled temperature of 28- 30°C, maceration on the skins for 20-25 days with extracting technique made with delestage (one a week) and pumping over (decreasing along the process).
Method of aging: aged for 3 and half year in Slavonian 32Hl oak barrels, then other 4 months in bottles for refining.
Aging potential: 10-20 years according to vintage.
Colour: brilliant red with burgundy reflects.
Bouquet: penetrating with memories of wild black fruits, black cherry and noble wood.
Taste: warm, dry and persistent.
Accompanies: wine of great body and elegance. It can be served with all our best dishes of the Tuscan tradition: in particular with roasted meat, game, braised meat and ripe cheeses like Pecorino cheese.

Collemattoni is a tiny 7 hectare estate planted exclusively with Sangiovese Grosso vines in San Angelo in Colle, on the southern side of the hill of Montalcino, nestling above the famous and rather larger Col d'Orcia vineyards (145 hectares). The first records mentioning the Bucci family in the Parish of Sant’Angelo in Colle date back to 1798 when Giuseppe Bucci, farmer and father of a large family appeared in village records. Today Marcello Bucci, who studied oenology under Signora Fuligni (Roberto Fuligni's aunt), manages the estate and is making wonderfully good wines which have rapidly increased both in quality and international recognition. The wines from these vineyards are fuller and riper, though perhaps marginally less fine than, say, Fuligni's, but what they lack in finesse is more than compensated for in the pricing, making Collemattoni one of the best value wines of the region.

They own 4 vineyards located in different areas around the village of Montalcino: Di Sesta: 3 Ha, Southeast facing, elevation of 350m; La Cava: 1.5 Ha, Southeast facing, elevation of 330m Fontelontano: 0.45 Ha, Southeast facing, elevation of 380m; Di Casa: South/Southwest facing, elevation of 420m

“Good deep, bright red. Complex, varietally expressive aromas of redcurrant, dried flowers, tobacco, spices and pepper. A silky-sweet midweight with harmonious framing acidity and subtle notes of graphite, tobacco and smoke. The suave finish features a restrained sweetness and dusty tannins that are not hard. Nicely balanced, old-school Brunello.” 90 points Stephen Tanzer
