Tasting Note: Delicious and elegantly structured, the palate shows youthful tension that offsets juicy Morello cherry, crushed raspberry, grilled rosemary and baking spice. Taut, refined tannins and bright acidity provide impeccable balance. 

ABV: 13.5%

Farming Practices: Practicing Organic

The late MontGiulio Gambelli was known throughout Brunello di Montalcino as the, “Man who can hear wine.” Making wines into his early 90s, Gambelli's mind was a testament and one of the greatest resources for the clearest expression of Sangiovese from Brunello di Montalcino.

Gambelli was a legend. Il Colle employed him to express their vineyards to the utmost potential. The winery lies just outside of the old walls of the town of Montalcino. Il Colle was a convent turned farm, turned residence and winery by Alberto Carli in 1972 whose first vintage was 1978. The wineries logo is derived from a mysterious artifact unearthed in a vineyard about 20 years ago. It has been speculated that the object is of either Celtic, Etruscan, Roman, Moorish and even Martian origin.
