Wow! What a beautiful and inviting nose this has. There are delicious notes of deeply aromatic cherry and juicy plum and bluer fruits too. This certainly has more breadth and up-front impact than either Padelletti or Fuligni - but there is beautiful complexity too. A surprising subtlety to the richly patterned and textured kaleidoscope of deep, juicy fruits and tasty hints of undergrowth. Some super mineral and herbal notes too, this is loaded! Spiced, pretty, complex and long - its all here in this deeply satisfying Brunello. Bravo Marcello! Drinking range: 2020 - L&S (Feb 2020)

In addition to achieving organic certification in 2012, Collemattoni's new cellar was built with rainwater recovery pipes and generates 80% of its own electricity through biomass energy and solar panels. Assembled from five vineyards all located in the southern reaches of Montalcino, this captures the intense ripeness of the vintage with sweet cherry fruit, chocolatey tannins and a creamy texture. Yet there is a refreshing juiciness and lift of woodland herbs underneath. A curvaceous, exuberant, jolly wine with lots of purity. Drinking range: 2021 - 2031Decanter Magazine(Apr 2020)

Good full red. Perfumed aromas of red cherry, kirsch, mocha and herbs on the inviting nose. Despite its size, this is graceful and impeccably built, with very precise flavors of red plum, blueberry, milk chocolate and minerals that expand and broaden on the long, seductive finish. Outstanding Brunello that offers both size and refinement. In my opinion, Collemattoni is a very underrated, off the radar Brunello estate but its wines deserve to be better known.

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, perhaps than, say, Fuligni or Padelletti, but what they lack in finesse is more than compensated for in the indulgent joy they give, not to mention the pricing, making Collemattoni one of the best value wines of the region.
