Sommelier's Description

Colour Brilliant ruby red.

The slow rotation in the glass emphasizes its structure and richness.

Scent Complex, fine, deep, full of hints of ripe small red fruits, under wood, exotic fruit and more  sensual spices
Taste Very distinct because of the perfect harmony of its two components: a solid structure, fullness of fruit, silky tannins, and the satisfying fullness of the taste that stretches elegantly into a very pleasant and persistent finale.

Donatella Cinelli Colombini considers the Brunello Prime Donne the flagship for her wineries, the first in Italy with an all female staff. This is a masterpiece wine produced in small amounts.
The idea for this wine was born in 1998 when Donatella noticed that the wine tasters for the Italian wine guides were all men. She decided then to reunite a group of great female wine experts asking them to taste, in a blind tasting, the future Brunello from different barrels, and to choose the one they liked the best. In the beginning, Brunello Prime Donne was a bold challenge, a premium red wine traditionally designed for male consumers that bows to the taste of women. Over the years its success with the consumers and the critics has gone hand in hand with the affirmation of the female gender as a buyer of high-end red wines. Today Brunello Prime Donne is exported to 30 countries around the world and is a symbol of courage, ethical values and a challenge to clichés.
