BRUNELLO DI MONTALCINO
|Sub-district||Brunello di Montalcino|
For Marcello, the 2013 has an added dimension of elegance and lift compared to the 2011 & 2012. This feels very fine and long with a good deep fruit underlying the straighter, firmer core. Dark plum juice and some lovely wood-spice combine to make this intense yet elevated. More focused than some vintages but delicious and, as ever, so fairly priced. L&S (Feb 2018)

Good full ruby-red. Inviting aromas of red cherry pie, black cherry, sweet spices, mocha and dried herbs. Densely packed and silky, displaying superb intensity to the high-pitched red cherry and berry flavors. This sexy, velvety wine offers terrific lift and sappiness, but has a very firm spine of noble tannins and lively acids that leaves a lingering impression of a classic Brunello. Lush and very long, this beauty is already irresistible now. Drinking range: 2022 - 2032 Rating: 93-93 Ian d'Agata, www.vinousmedia.com(Apr 2018)
The 2013 Brunello di Montalcino opens to dark ruby intensity with deep garnet highlights. The wine shows intensity and dark fruit aromas of blackberry, plum and black cherry. The fruit ripeness is evident and immediate, despite the cool growing conditions of this vintage. There is a point of tannin tightness on the close that should soften with a few more years in the bottle. Rating: 89 Monica Larner, The Wine Advocate (www.robertparker.com)(Feb 2018)
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.
