The very varied terroir of Montalcino does not allow great generalisations, but we can certainly consider the warm and sunny area of ​​Sant'Angelo in Colle less penalised than others in such bizarre years as 2014. The Brunello by Marcello Bucci aka Collemattoni tells it well: fruity and smoky vigour, it combines power and substance.Gambero Rosso(Feb 2019)

Mellow dried cherries and earthy, leathery notes lead to a wine that has a smooth, central focus of dried cherries and soft, supple tannins. Light and approachable. Drink now. Drinking range: 2019 - James Suckling, www.jamessuckling.com(Feb 2019)

Collemattoni

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.
