Italy’s male dominated world of winemaking is finally cracking and women winemakers are coming into their own. From Piedmont down to Sicily women are running some of Italy’s top cellars. Francesca Planeta has taken over the winemaking duties at her family’s Planeta Winery in Sicily.
In Tuscany’s Brunello region Donnatella Cinelli Colombini has taken women winemakers to the next level. She hired an all female staff to make her Donnatella Cinelli Colombini, Brunello di Montelcino, Prime Donna. The Prime Donna, 2007 is ruby red in color. The aroma is full of red fruit such as cherries and raspberries. The fruit is backed up by leather, tar and cedar box. The rich palate is full with dark fruits, some earth and nice acidity. The tannins have smoothed out and the finish is long. Enjoy the Donnatella Cinelli Colombini Brunello with roasted meat dishes with root vegtables.
