Natalie's Score: 94/100

Donatella Cinelli Colombini 2018 Brunello Di Montalcino is a full-bodied, umami-textured, vibrant Brunello. Fragrant and fresh with dark cherry, cassis, earthy mushroom, savoury and grilled herb flavours with notes of mint and cedar brush spice framed with cocoa powder textured tannins, it finishes velvety and long on the palate. This is a beautiful Brunello that will drink through the mid-2030s. Grapes for this vintage were sourced from the certified organic Donatella Cinelli Colombini estate vineyard. Ruggero Mazzilli, who has recently joined the wine making team is the vineyard manager and specialized in organics.

Brunello di Montalcino food pairings: grilled steak, roast leg of lamb, hard cheese, veal piccata.
