Donatella Cinelli Colombini Il Drago e le 8 Colombe 2018

Montalcino, Siena, Tuscany, ItalyFrom Trequanda’s Fattoria del Colle, at 400m on hills of predominantly limestone and sandstone comes this Supertuscan blend of Sangiovese (60%), and equal parts Merlot, and Sagrantino. This was vinified in stainless before 18 months in large barrels and in 5-7 hl French oak tonneaux. Ripe and dark fruited, with blackcurrant, blackberry, black cherry, plum blossoms on a full palate, structured taut with the soils and acidity, taking this to a humming, stony, spiced finish. Tannins are firm and grippy, giving this a few years ahead in the bottle. 7500 bottles were made.Tasted: 10 August 2021Tasted by: Treve RingPrices: BC 29.99 BCLS AB 39.99 private wine stores ON 35.95 consignment Producer: Donatella Cinelli ColombiniDistributors: Stile Brands
