COLOR: brilliant ruby red but pale, as is usual with Sangiovese. The wine dances slowly in the glass underlining its excellent structure. AROMA: Very rich, deep, fine, hints of ripe small red fruits, citrus fruit and spices. TASTE: extremely well balanced and fine. Very pleasant, it opens up softly in the mouth with great intensity and silky tannins. Finishes with a delicious persistence 2015 a five star vintage characterized by rich aromas and silky tannins in the mouth, great harmony on the palate and an extraordinary finesse. A great Brunello. Brunello Riserva is one of the finest red wines in the world because of its extraordinary quality and the great cellaring ability. It can defy the century mark!

Wine Spectator: 95 Points

This red combines fresh cherry and strawberry fruit with graphite, earth and leather notes for a positive impression. A swath of burly tannins lingers on the finish, needing time to meld with the ripe fruit and rich texture. Best from 2024 through 2043. 800 cases made, 150 cases imported. — BS

Wine Advocate: 94 Points

The Donatella Cinelli Colombini 2015 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva shows a dense and concentrated personality, owing much to the warm, sunny and delightful conditions of this epic growing season. This wine draws its fruit from a 10-hectare parcel with clay soils and wide-open skies with clouds and sunbeams, which take in most of the landscape to the north of Montalcino. This is a 9,600-bottle production. Black cherry, blackberry confit, spice and warm earth make up the bouquet. Plush and slightly sweet fruit flavors color the softly textured mouthfeel. This Riserva shows a bit of extra vintage ripeness, rendering a more accessible, medium-term drinking window.

Vinous: 94 Points

The 2015 Colombini Brunello di Montalcino Riserva is an understated beauty, with a bouquet that mixes notes of wet stone and earthy minerals with wild strawberry and flowery perfumes. It’s wonderfully pure and lifted by saline-minerality, giving way to sweet red berry fruit, inner florals and herbal tones. Zesty acidity adds balance even as fine tannins slowly settle in. It’s hard to imagine the 2015 getting better than it already is today, yet a few years of cellaring should broaden its textures and reveal even further depths. Very nice

James Suckling: 93 Points

A red with plum, spice, chocolate and cherry, as well as orange peel. Full-bodied with firm, silky tannins and a juicy, flavorful finish. Really fine with a refined finish. Super balance and beauty here. Drink or hold.
