    Caterina Carli's newest release will appeal to those who love the understated side of this classic vintage in Brunello. The Il Colle 2015 Brunello di Montalcino delivers a pretty playlist of aromas and flavors that beautifully fit the personality of this warm and sunny vintage. The wine showcases lovely shades of dark berry, candied cherry and crushed flowers, and those delicate aromas are delivered with lifted or buoyant intensity. This is slender and graceful in terms of mouthfeel, with tight and elegant tannins. A solid effort overall. 93/100

Producer

Il Colle

Located in the cool north east of Montalcino, the tiny 7 hectare Il Colle estate is run by owner and winemaker Caterina Carli. She crafts some truly outstanding Brunello from her newly completed winery which sits just below the town of Montalcino.

Region

Montalcino

Located southwest of Chianti, Montalcino came into its own in the late 1880s when local producer,Biondi-Santi, discovered a Sangiovese clone in his vineyard that was darker in colour than the rest. Its colour, however, was not its only attribute. It produced a wine with notable body, structure and length. He named it ‘brunello' meaning little dark one. This grape's genetic properties along with Montalcino's relatively temperate climate combine to create a wine stylistically different to that of more northerly Chianti. They are usually released approximately 5 years after the vintage following 2 to 4 years ageing in wood. The denomination of Riserva indicates a wine usually produced with more concentrated grapes than the traditional cuvéeand requires a minimum of one additional year of ageing.Today, Montalcino has become one of the most sought after appellations in the Tuscan region.
