The results are excellent, for the whole range, obviously the Brunello bottles obtain higher ratings, but even the simpler wines have had excellent reviews. It is a great motive of pride, and means that all has been done well in the vineyard and in the cellar, but most of all it also signifies having a great respect for one’s clients. <<In my winery there are not bottles especially for journalists and VIP’s, we have some sections at higher prices, but all the bottles are the same and the market is repaying us for this choice of honesty and correctness>>.

Casato Prime Donne in Montalcino and Fattoria del Colle in Trequanda have 34 hectares of vineyards cultivated organically and manually cared for.

There are two cellars, in historic buildings and fermentation areas in modern structures. Here to the passion and daily attention are evident in the handmade tonneaux, the new truncated cone shaped bare concrete vats , the plungers that allow the fermentation to happen without the use of pumps… so many details that help preserve the natural harmony that wine gets from grapes. In the end, only 160.000 bottles sold in 35 nations but none go to supermarkets.

<<Here are the ratings for my last vintages>> says Donatella Cinelli Colombini, quite rightly proud <<I shall be expecting you in Tuscany to see my small but wonderful wineries>>
