Collemattoni Brunello di Montalcino DOCG 2011

“Collemattoni’s 2011 Brunello di Montalcino is rich and exuberant, but also very nicely done. The intensity of the vintage comes through loud and clear. Although the 2011 is very ripe, the wine’s mid-weight sense of structure balances out some of that raciness. Sweet red cherries, dried flowers, anise and tobacco add the final shades of nuance. This is an attractive Brunello to drink now and over the next handful of years, maybe longer.” 90 points Antonio Galloni, Vinous

“Dark red. Almost decadent aromas of superripe red cherry, marzipan, sweet brown spices and licorice. Then opulent and creamy-rich on the palate too, offering perfumed flavors of red cherries macerated in alcohol, peach, apricot and white pepper. Finishes big and lush, with a whiff of alcoholic warmth. This extremely impressive Rosso is made in an almost porty style that’s not my favorite but will undoubtedly have many admirers.” 90 points Ian D’Agata, Vinous

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
