BRUNELLO DI MONTALCINO
2010 Vigna Fontelontano Riserva Collemattoni
|Sub-district||Brunello di Montalcino|
Cherry and plum flavors are singed by mushroom, tamari and wet earth notes in this broad, burly red. Sweetness shows at the core, balancing the tannins. Drinking range: 2019 - 2033 Rating: 94-94 Bruce Sanderson, The Wine Spectator (Apr 2016)
*Case Price: Mix any 12 bottles of wine or 6 bottles of Champagne, Spirits or Fortified to get the 'case price' for each bottle.
This is a tiny seven hectare estate 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). Marcello Bucci, who studied oenology under Signora Fuligni (Roberto Fuligni's aunt), is making wonderfully good wines which have rapidly increased both in quality and international recognition. A new winery finished in time for the harvest in 2015 has given Marcello greater control and flexibility with the wine-making - this is an estate going from strength to strength 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.

Very earthy, meaty, decadent aromas with ripe cherries as well. Full body, round and soft tannins and a flavorful finish. Very drinkable now. Rating: 90-90 James Suckling, The Wine Spectator (Feb 2016)
