"Marino Colleoni is the most exciting new producer emerging in Montalcino today."
“Marino Colleoni is the most exciting new producer emerging in Montalcino today. A maniacal approach to farming based on sustainable practices has led Colleoni to focus on restoring a healthy, vibrant ecosystem in his vineyards in the Montosoli zone. The wines are made with indigenous yeasts and aged in cask. Colleoni releases 8,000-9,000 bottles in total, of which 3,000 are Brunello and 2,500 are Rosso from Brunello-designated vineyards. I tasted the Colleoni wines next to some of Montalcino’s long established benchmarks and they were tremendous. These big, powerful Brunelli merit serious attention.” Antonio Galloni the Wine Advocate 4/12.
The above is serious praise from Antonio Galloni of the Wine Advocate for Marino Colleoni!
The praise is well deserved. The wines are truly standouts and yes they do stand shoulder to shoulder with the best of Montalcino.
The 2007 is a knock-out and in the sea of Brunello today this is one that really does stand out. I would heed Antonio Galloni’s urgence and try this wine…"Readers should do whatever they can to taste the 2007."
Our tiny allocation of these wines are set to arrive the middle of this fall but he demand has already been huge with people already calling looking for the wines. You need to act fast to secure your wines today.
