Great opportunity for the most demanding of wine lovers, those who look for unique things to have in their cellars or to give as presents. The 6 vintages of Cenerentola Doc Orcia

Cenerentola DOC Orcia

Cenerentola DOC Orcia

The Orcia Denomination was born in 2000 between the Brunello and Nobile di Montepulciano wine regions. It is in fact these two “sisters” older and more famous, who allow this wine to resemble the well known fairytale and give the wine its name “Cenerentola”

The Cenerentolais produced in small quantities of about 5-10,000 bottles every year. They are all “sold out” except the 2010 which is on the other hand a preview especially for you. The selection which we are proposing is consequently something exclusive an un-findable.

It is also a available at a small price: Euro 150.00 with free shipping in Italy
For those living abroad a discount of € 10.00 on shipping costs will be applied.

Cenerentola Doc Orcia is born at Fattoria del Colle 400 m above sea level and is produced with Sangiovese and a very rare Foglia Tonda, traditional grape variety of the Sienese territory rediscovered by Donatella Cinelli Colombini after more than one century of disuse.

The Cenerentola Doc Orcia ages for one year in small French oak casks and has an excellent ability

2012 a sunny balance at the end of the year for Donatella Cinelli Colombini

  • Published in Forum

2012 a very tiring year where a lot of work has been done. Great awards, successes, small commercial progress and great difficulties tied to the International crisis.

Vinitaly 2012 - Donatella Cinelli Colombini - Premio Internazionale Vinitaly

The best image of the past year is of the Premio internazionale Vinitaly received directly from the President Mr. Riello and the General Manager of Veronafiere Giovanni Mantovani. Such an important award which I shared with Debra Meiburg the Master of Wine who rates 7th in the list of most powerful women in wine in the world.

A good portrait of the increase in quality of the wines from this cellar is given by the image of 5 wines with ratings over 90/100 in Wine Spectator: Il Drago e le 8 Colombe, Cenerentola, Brunello, Brunello Prime Donne and Riserva, the latter with 95/100 is in the Olympus of the 18 Italian “Top Wines” chosen by Wine Spectator. The Brunello Prime Donne is among those Highly Recommended by “Decanter” and among the three preferred by the Master of Wine Rosemary George. Read more…

Cenerentola Doc Orcia - Donatella Cinelli Colombini

A great wine to be consumed straight away or to be kept for years. Cenerentola Orcia DOC has now become the Princess that Donatella Cinelli Colombini has dreamed of since 2001, when she decided to produce a new wine bringing back into use an old Tuscan grape variety called Foglia Tonda. That had been abandoned for nearly a century.

A dream that has taken for than 10 years of work, to understand the grape variety which tends to be over productive, and transfer her into the ideal companion for the Sangiovese, He is elegant and austere, she is very likeable. Ten years of work in the cellar to work out the most apt barrel and wood and to understand the duration of the ageing. And finally here she is, Cenerentola, sumptuous, elegant, modern and Tuscan.

A small step forward for the denomination born in the year 2000 in one of the most beautiful agricultural territories in the world: the Val d’Orcia and the Crete senesi.  A land of soft hills where the vines are alternated with woods, olive groves, and on lower grounds field of grains. Fattoria del Colle is in the Doc Orcia territory and produces two wines from this denomination: Leone rosso and Cenerentola, the second of which is made with only Tuscan grapes – Sangiovese and Foglia tonda -.From this year onwards Doc Orcia will also have the “riserva” type, which must have at least one years ageing in oak barrels, and a type called “Sangiovese” with a maximum of 10% of other local grape types like Colorino, Canaiolo, Malvasia Nera and Foglia Tonda. These decisions underline a production strategy regarding quality and identity; a strategy which honours this young, small but very competitive denomination.
