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.
