Collemattoni, Rosso do Montalcino
Producer:Collemattoni, Montalcino, Tuscany, Italy
Collemattoni was founded in 1984 by Aldo Bucci, the father of the current owner, Marcello. Bucci has a predilection for tradition, and his wines seduce with their purity and elegance.

The name Collemattoni is translated to ‘hill of brick’ and dates back to the Etruscan period (700-1000BC) The estate itself is within the historical zone of the Etruscan era and had vines and olive trees planted on the site. The oldest portion of the estate structure dates back to the beginning of the 800’s.

Collemattoni is a seven acre estate, located in San Angelo in Colle, on the southern side of the hill of Montalcino, nestling above the famous and rather larger Col d'Orcia vineyards (145 hectares). The owner and winemaker, Marcello Bucci, studied oenology under Signora Fuligni (Roberto Fuligni's aunt), and has been making wonderfully good wines which have rapidly increased both in quality and international recognition. The wines from these vineyards are fuller and riper, and as for the pricing, Collemattoni is one of the best value wines of the region.

Collemattoni practices organic viticulture, transitioning over the last of the vineyards in 2011.
