La Colombina, which borders both the Ciacci estate and the Uccelliera estate in the warm southeastern Castelnuovo dell'Abate district of Montalcino, has been in the Caselli family for generations. The superior location of the estate is immediately evident in the ripe, powerful fruit on the nose, with an underlying intensity and weight that is typical of Castelnuovo dell'Abate, making wines such as those of Ciacci and Uccelliera so compelling and long-lived.

Offers opulent fruit on the nose, with mushroom and toffee. Full-bodied, with loads of decadent ripe berry, coffee and dark chocolate character. Big and juicy. Best after 2012.

This Brunello Riserva delivers subdued aromas of cherry, blackberry, tar and spice. There's a sour cherry theme in the mouth and the finish is bright and crisp. It is, however, a very food-friendly wine thanks to the acidity. Pair it with grilled meats, wild mushroom risotto or cheesy pasta.
