Item Number: 23781
Tasting Notes:
Round, fresh tasting and with the right proportions is presented with notes of red fruits and slightly spicy. Wine from the varied combination is very pleasant and easy bevita.

Aging and aging process:
Steps in small oak barrels for about 1 year in barriques, then in the bottle for 4-5 months.

Wine Information:
La Colombina borders on both the Ciacci and Uccelliera estates in the township of Castelnuovo dell’Abate. The vineyards have been in the Caselli family for generations, but the family, proprietors of a winemaking-equipment shop in Montalcino, had always chosen to sell the grapes rather than bottle their own wines. Husband and wife team Anna Maria and Alamiro decided to make the leap into wine production in the mid-90s, and were lucky to have 1997 as the first vintage of this estate-bottled Brunello!

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 that, similar to Ciacci and Uccelliera, are compelling and long-lived. Close in quality to their better-known neighbors, Colombina’s wines remain a great value, particularly their Rosso di Montalcino, which delivers great Montalcino Sangiovese at a fraction of the cost of other rossos.
