La Colombina Brunello di Montalcino 2013
La Colombina is in the township of Castelnuovo dell’Abate and borders on the Ciacci and Uccelliera estates. The Caselli family has owned the vineyards for generations. Husband and wife team Anna Maria and Alamiro produced their first wine in 1997. This Brunello is big, dense, and loaded with powerful dark fruit. One of the top values of the vintage.
WS91: "Rich, evoking cherry, plum, licorice and savory, saline aromas and flavors. Shows moderate density midpalate, finishing with a tight grain to the tannins and savory length. Best from 2020 through 2035." - Wine Spectator
JS91: "At once ripe and fresh, this is a juicy and elegant Brunello that's easy to drink right away. Rather long and very clean finish. Drink now or hold." - James Suckling
