"Fragrant and elegant, this offers lovely scents of pressed blue flower and an earthy whiff of new leather. The savory refined palate delivers ripe red cherry, cranberry, star anise, orange zest and crushed herb alongside polished, fine-grained tannins. It's nicely balanced, with bright acidity. Drink 2024–2033. -KO"

"I love the way this wine has absorbed and reflects the sunny and warm personality of its maker, the brilliant Donatella Cinelli Colombini. The 2013 Brunello di Montalcino Prime Donne has her spirit and her vision, and I recognize that as I taste through these samples. Her distinctive winemaking mark is achieved with botte and tonneaux aging, and her style is definitely fuller and more generous than most. It's a modern Brunello, if you care to categorize wines in this way. Only 6,660 bottles were produced. The vineyards are exposed to wider horizons that make for more light hours each day (from dawn to sunset) of the growing cycle. I'm on team Donatella."

"Deep ruby. Herbs, sweet spices and coffee complicate sexy plum and sweet spice flavors. Multilayered and well balanced, offering suave tannins and lively harmonious acidity, this features a rising, polished finish. Outstanding Brunello that really builds on you."

"Produced by Donatella Cinelli Colombini’s all-female team of vintners, this wine starts out in small oak barrels and gradually moves into larger vessels for the final stages of aging. It opens with scents of coffee and savory herbs that brighten into ripe cherry, mint and lavender flavors. Still firmly tannic, it will benefit from a few years of cellaring."
"A traditional style Brunello, produced in a small exclusive selection.
It owes its exceptionality to the Sangiovese grapes from which it is born. The small size of the clusters and berries allow it to combine longevity, an extraordinary elegance and a surprising pleasantness. The solid acidic and tannic structure is in fact barely perceptible thanks to a perfect harmony." - Winery
