Despite its youth, Donatella Cinelli Colombini’s 2016 Brunello di Montalcino is strikingly smooth and delicate, which is fast-acquiring this wine's critical acclaim. Once you taste your first sip, it's easy to see why this newcomer is receiving such high ratings... Perfect for curling up with a blanket and a good book, this wine soaks the pallet with dark cherries, plums and licorice, while the lingering aromas of smoke, tobacco and vanilla fill your nose like the sweet dying embers of a log fire.
When pairing with food, we recommend serving this robust and fragrant wine alongside hearty dishes like a root vegetable stew, with crusty bread for dipping. Or if you’re looking for something fresher, the sour cranberry bite and exotic spice of this Brunello di Montalcino would make it a great match with a warm falafel salad. The bold structure and higher acidity of this 2016 vintage mean it will age gracefully too, making it a truly great wine for cellaring - if you think you can wait to enjoy it!
