“The 2012 Brunello vintage was stunning and today we have two unrivaled wines both in quality and price. The overall value in 2012 Brunello is something rarely seen. What you are getting for the money is near impossible to find in the wine market from any other region. Two such wines are the newly-arrived and quickly departing 2012 La Colombina and Collemattoni; both Brunellos are huge values in any vintage and outstanding wines. You won’t want to be without these 94 and 96 point 2012s. We’ve got a great price on both these wines both of these high-scoring wines are under $50 a bottle! Quantities are extremely limited, so act fast!” – Lance Montalto, The Wine House

“This red combines power and elegance, with bright acidity and dense tannins. Cherry and plum fruit are accented by leather, tobacco and mineral as this glides to a lingering conclusion. Shows fine balance, with a tealike finish. Best from 2020 through 2035. 1,200 cases made.” – Bruce Sanderson, Wine Spectator, June 2017

“The La Colombina 2012 Brunello di Montalcino opens to tart berry notes with dried cherry and blackberry at the front. The wine delivers thick texture and smooth consistency that is in line with the attributes of this warm vintage. Spice, leather and tobacco appear on the finish. This Brunello is aged in large oak casks (with both French and Slavonian wood) for up to 40 months.” – Monica Larner, Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate, May 2017

“Bright red-ruby. Musky but initially subdued aromas of plum, red cherry and botanical herbs, though the fruit gains in weight with aeration. Then ripe red cherry, woodsy underbrush and spice flavors are joined by a musky tobacco quality that leaves an impression of a faintly bitter but not unpleasant edge. Ripely tannic on the broad, savory but not exceptionally long finish. A fairly intense and substantial wine, in a warm style (15% alcohol) that will match best with hearty foods such as stews.” – Ian D’Agata, Vinous, March 2017

“This is very Burgundian in style, with effusive cherry, strawberry and floral aromas and flavors riding a supple texture until the characteristic Sangiovese tannins emerge on the finish. Elegant, complex and long overall. Best from 2021 through 2035. 2,000 cases made.” – Bruce Sanderson, Wine Spectator, June 2017

“Bright red with ruby tinges. Musky red raspberry, mocha and violet on the nose. At once big and restrained, dense and rich, showcasing Collemattoni’s typical thick, strapping mouthfeel but also more lift and refinement than usual. Round and fairly large-scaled but with plenty of verve that will repay extended cellaring. Really classic Brunello.” – Ian D’Agata, Vinous, March 2017

From the Winery: Collemattoni takes its name from the farmhouse, which, over time, has become the trademark of our winery and of our wines. The farmhouse dates back to at least 1672, year in which it is registered in the parish archives as a family home. Collemattoni is located on a hill top on the south side of the municipal area of Montalcino, just a short distance from the village of Sant’Angelo in Colle.

The first record of the Bucci family dates to 1798 with Giuseppe Bucci « Zappaterra» (Digger), head of a large family. Today, the estate is run by Marcello Bucci with the support of his parents Ado and Vera as well as uncle Franco. The philosophy of the winery allows for technology but in a style that comes from belonging to the place.

In 2012 Collemattoni has obtained the organic certification and everything is done in the full respect of the environment. Thanks to the presence of a biomass fuelled heating system and solar panels, we are able to produce the 80% of the electricity needed at the winery.
