“It’s a magical moment for the wines of Fattoria del Colle” says Donatella Cinelli Colombini.
Incredible but true, in recent months, the judgments of the main international specialized press, on bottles coming from the smallest and least famous of her cellars have exceeded the ratings, although very
good, of some bottles from the Casato Prime Donne in Montalcino. This had never happened before .

CENERENTOLA DOC ORCIA 93/100 WINE SPECTATOR
The last two reviews have recently come to confirm the impressive qualitative progression and consensus of the wines of Fattoria del Colle. For the Cenerentola Doc Orcia it is the consecration after the commercial success>> said Donatella Cinelli Colombini remembering how the wine lovers have appreciated more quickly the blend based on the ancient Foglia tonda that confers a very special character to the wine, while for the great critics the process took more time.
And here’s the description made by Bruce Sanderson, senior editor of Wine Spectator
There is purity of aromas and flavors of cherry, blackberry, violet and minerals, in this refined red, vibrant and balanced, with a long and decisive finish that echoes the elements of fruit and minerals, adding a woody note.Il-Drago-e-le-8-colombe-2016-IGT-Robert-Parker-93/100
IL DRAGO E LE 8 COLOMBE 2016 IGT 93/100 WINE ADVOCATE ROBERT PARKER
This is the description of Monica Larner super taster of Italian wines for Wine advocate – Robert Parker
Il Drago e le 8 colombe offer earthy salty sensations that come partly from the Sangiovese and partly from the Sagrantino grape. Those distinctive aromas are softened to a large extent by Merlot, especially in a classic vintage like this one that allows each variety separately to show its best side and its own specificity. The bouquet recalls the fruits of cherry and cassis, to which are added, with particular intensity, aromas of tobacco and spices. Pair with grilled steak and potatoes
