The 2016 vintage is << the best vintage of an entire generation >>. This is said by Bruce Sanderson, senior editor of Wine Spectator, , a prestigious American magazine in the wine sector. According to Bruce, the Brunellos from 2016 are the most interesting wines since the 1990s.

This vintage of Brunello has also been called the year of wonders, of real masterpieces destined to make the history of the appellation, one more reason to grab and keep as many bottles of this vintage as possible, to enjoy it today as in 20 years.

THE BRUNELLO DI MONTALCINO PRIME DONNE 2016

Casato Prime Donne is a property of 40 hectares of which almost half of vineyards in the Sangiovese variety. The cultivation is organic, certified since 2018. This estate belonged to Donatella Cinelli Colombini’s ancestors already in 1592. It is located in the northern area of ​​Montalcino where the climate is cooler and the soils are colder and richer in clay.

At Casato in 2016 the vegetative cycle of the vines – from bud to harvest – was longer than usual, this gave rise to grapes in perfect balance and Brunellos that are deep, satisfying, refined and more suitable than ever for long aging. This Brunello in particular is the symbol of the first Italian winery with an entirely female staff, the Casato Prime Donne in the North-West area of ​​Montalcino. Three oenologists work there – Barbara, Sabrina and Giada – and an external enologist consultant, Valérie Lavigne. The decisions regarding the selection, maturation and blend between the various barrels involve a panel of 4 very expert international tasters: a winemaker, a sommelier and two Masters of Wine: Astrid Schwarz, Daniela Scrobogna, Rosemary George MW and Madeleine Stenwreth MW.

THE RISERVA 2016

Brunello Riserva is produced only in the best years, when the climate gives rise to small and open clusters with small and perfectly ripe berries. Generally these are years with rainy winters and cool but sunny summers that end with strong temperature variations between night and day in September.

Like the pregnancy of human beings, the path that leads the grapes to the day of harvest lasts a specific time that varies only due to the climate, but generally consists of 3 phases of two months each for a total of 180 days. In 2016, the sprouting of the vines took place 15 days earlier than normal and this also had to anticipate the grape harvest by 15 days. Instead, the biological cycles slowed down and the harvest took place on the usual days. The ripening was perfect, the one that every wine producer dreams of.

 

The 2016 Reserve has already brought home excellent results after only a few months from being put on the market:

A PARTICULARITY OF THE 2016 VINTAGE AT CASATO PRIME DONNE

This was the first harvest where the grapes chosen for the Brunello were vinified in small cone-shaped Nomblot vats of bare concrete, with temperature control. Even the fulling system created for me by Appiano Romano officine mechanics is a real gem. In 15 minutes it gently submerges the grape skins better than with the manual control. The result is a more harmonious wine, with more intact fruity notes and a more direct manifestation of the characteristics of Sangiovese.
