From one of the "small jewels in Montalcino's original growing area," Il Colle was once a part of Conti Costanti's Colle al Matrichese, a property that sits at a high altitude of 400-450 meters. Yielding delicate wine almost as delicate as the story of the inception of Il Colle.  Alberto- original owner- planted vines with Giulio Gambelli in 1972, only to surprise Ernesta '“ his wife- as he lay dying with a cellar full of unsold vintages that the two men had made together. Il Colle adheres strictly to traditional techniques, a rustic winery employing natural yeasts, no temperature control, long maceration on skins, and no filtering, aging the Brunellos in Slavonian botti. The winery has changed very little in the past 35 to 40 years, allowing the vineyard to express itself in a clean environment. This was the Brunello we poured by-the-glass at Pappas Bros Steakhouse after having five very experienced sommeliers taste forty Brunello's side-by-side in order to find best value. If that isn't proof of a great value to get into a traditional style of Brunello, I don't know what is.
