A Brunello di Montalcino is a red Italian wine produced in the vineyards surrounding the town of Montalcino, located just south of Florence in the Tuscany wine region. Brunello is the name that was given locally to what was once believed to be an individual grape variety grown in Montalcino - however in 1879, it was determined that Sangiovese and Brunello were the same grape variety. Now in Montalcino, the name Brunello is given to wines produced with 100% Sangiovese and the Brunello di Montalcinos are among Italy's best known wines. The Collelceto 2008 Brunello di Montalcino has bright fruit notes of cherry, pomegranate, raspberry and red currant that balance nicely with the well-integrated spice, leather and tobacco notes and soft tannins.
