Winemaker Notes

Donatella Cinelli Colombini's all-female wineries dedicate this wine to one man: the enologist Carlo Ferrini. He is the dragon that is portrayed on the label, while the doves who surround him are the seven women who work with him in the winery. A very technicial vinification process is performd starting with dry ice to lower the temperature of the grapes when they arrive at the winery. The destemming and crushing processes are done simultaneously to enhance the extraction of polyphenols.

This blend of Sangiovese, Alicante, and Merlot is aged a year and a half in small French 5hl barrels. Very dark ruby-red in color. A complex nose with fruity and herbaceous notes. A powerful wine with good structure, very elegant tannins on the palate with a typical Merlot rounded elegance and a not so typical Alicante "spice", all making for a long intriguing finish. Serve with roasted meats and aged cheeses.

Donatella Cinelli Colombini Winery Image
At Casato Prime Donne there are 18 hectares of vineyard and the winery for the production and ageing of the Brunello di Montalcino wine. The winemakers are all women: a revolutionary work situation for Italy. In the vineyards around Casato, there is a trail walk where quotations from the winners of the Casato Prime Donne Award and works of art accompany those walking through the vineyards. The surrounding landscape of the Val’d'Orcia has been declared by Unesco an important part of the heritage of humankind.

In 1592 Donatella Cinelli Colombini’s ancestors already owned Casato. They would come here to go hunting and it was here that they brought their wives on their honeymoon. In recent times Casato belonged to Donatella's grandmother, who passed it on to Donatella’s mother; Donatella in turn will pass it on to her daughter Violante. Since 1998 this large stone building has a new name Casato Prime Donne and it is the first winery in Italy where the winemakers are all female.

Legendary in Italy for its Renaissance art and striking landscape, Tuscany is also home to many of the country’s best red wines. Sangiovese reigns supreme here, as either the single varietal, or a dominant player, in almost all of Tuscany’s best.

A remarkable Chianti, named for its region of origin, will have a bright acidity, supple tannins and plenty of cherry fruit character. From the hills and valleys surrounding the medieval village of Montalcino, come the distinguished and age-worthy wines based on Brunello (Sangiovese). Earning global acclaim since the 1970s, the Tuscan Blends are composed solely of international grape varieties or a mix of international and Sangiovese. The wine called Vine Nobile di Montepulciano, composed of Prognolo Gentile (Sangiovese) and is recognized both for finesse and power.
