"Solid wine for the vintage. Aromas of plums with hints of prunes and flowers follow through to a full body, with round, slightly chew tannins and a fresh finish. Dense and structured. Delicious."

Wine Spectator 92
"Pure and fresh, with appealing cherry and floral flavors, complemented by underbrush and spice notes. The tannins have yet to resolve, but this remains balanced and long. Best from 2015 through 2027. 1,250 cases made. –BS"

Wine Advocate 91 - AG
"La Colombina's 2008 Brunello di Montalcino is beautiful in this vintage. Impeccably layered and well balanced, the 2008 is endowed with gorgeous depth and tons of nuance. Cloves, new leather, tobacco, plums and black cherries all mesh together in an expressive, impeccably crafted Brunello. La Colombina's 2008 is one of the positive surprises of the vintage. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2023."

" La Colombina, which borders both the Ciacci estate and the Uccelliera estate in the warm southeastern Castelnuovo dell'Abate district of Montalcino, has been in the Caselli family for generations. The superior location of the estate is immediately evident in the ripe, powerful fruit on the nose, with an underlying intensity and weight that is typical of Castelnuovo dell'Abate, making wines such as those of Ciacci and Uccelliera so compelling and long-lived. About 1200 cases are made each year. " ~ Winery notes
