94+ 92 AND 92 FROM ROBERT PARKER FOR DONATELLA’S NEW BRUNELLOS

94+ FOR THE BRUNELLO 2019 PRIME DONNE, 92/100 FOR THE BRUNELLO 2019 AND THE RISERVA 2018 BY WINE ADVOCATE – ROBERT PARKER AND SUPER TASTER MONICA LARNER

 

Donatella Cinelli Colombini is chasing the dream of creating very “natural” and long-lived Brunellos while respecting the purity of the grapes.

From this comes an obsessive commitment in the vineyards, where the vines are cared for one by one with organic methods and some biodynamic elements. Even the manual harvest is organized to harvest every small parcel on the right day. The fermentations are very delicate, in 50 hl truncated cone-shaped bare concrete vats, so each hectare of vineyard is vinified separately. During maturation, the use of large oak barrels is increasing and that of small 5-7hl barrels is decreasing, barriques are not used. A path that is leading Donatella Cinelli Colombini to stand out among the producers of Montalcino with a style of her own.

Like every year, Monica Larner tastes all the Brunello di Montalcino which is entering the market, to get an overall analysis of the Montalcino area. In her latest article for Robert Parker-Wine Advocate she highlighted the arrival of a new style with a change that starts from the bottom and from small wineries. The wines show the overcoming of the opulent forms typical of twenty years ago; they have a more vertical profile and greater drinkability and freshness.

92/100 BRUNELLO DI MONTALCINO 2019

Monica Larner describes the tasting like this <<you will find dark fruit, sage and hints of wood as well as fruit compote, grapes and cooked plums… It definitely requires more time in the bottle>> The advice of the Wine Advocate’s super taster – Robert Parker depends on the new wood that she finds in the wine and that comes from the new large French oak barrels.

<<The 2019 organic Brunello di Montalcino Prime Donne has a more succulent fruit… It features chocolate-covered cherry, exotic incense, dark plum, balsamic herbs and earthy orris root. It also reveals a bigger mouthfeel with concentrated fruit and a dense texture carried by velvety tannins. These results are fruity and expressive. Production is limited to 9,663 bottles>>. A description that reflects a harmonious and expressive Brunello.

<< The bouquet reveals pressed currants, freshly split wood, sauna cedar and dried blackberry. On the palate it appears very ripe with cooked plum>>. Donatella Cinelli Colombini is very happy with this wine, which she considers among the best Brunellos she has ever produced due to the powerful harmony of its characters.
