Lustrous mid ruby. Quite closed on the nose and not conveying a lot. Brooding cherry with a hint of pine. Open-knit cherry fruit palate with grainy tannins. Long and supple, with quite a bit of tannic grip on the finish, but can be approached already. Drinking range: 2027 - 2028 Rating: 16 Walter Speller, www.jancisrobinson.com (Mar 2021)

Aromas of plum and cherry with some cedar and walnut that follow through to a full body with a dense, structured palate and powerful tannins. Very long and persistent. Muscular. Best ever. Drink after 2024. Drinking range: 2024 - Rating: 95 James Suckling, www.jamessuckling.com (Dec 2020)

The 2016 Brunello di Montalcino from Collemattoni impresses with an expression of purity, showing wild strawberries with hints of green stems and nuances of sweet spice. It’s a soft and enveloping effort with a core of bright, juicy acids, which bring its red and black berry fruits to life. While youthfully dry and structured, this never loses momentum, tapering off to pretty inner florals. Only a few years of cellaring should bring this fully into focus. It’s a pleasure to taste.

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.
