Cantine aperte – Wine day at Casato Prime Donne in Montalcino 20 wines for tasting
Twenty years have passed since the first edition of “Cantine aperte” and Donatella Cinelli Colombini continues personally welcoming guests and offering them something exceptional, out of the ordinary compared to what they can taste the rest of the year.
Donatella is practically a mother of this event. She organized the first edition of Cantine aperte on the 9th of May 1993 in 100 Tuscan wineries and during the next few years she transformed it into a National event with more than 1000 wineries and nearly a million tourists taking part. Today the president of this association is Chiara Lungarotti, a great friend of Donatella’s and someone with whom she still collaborates.
On May 27th 2012 at Casato Prime Donne, among the Brunello vineyards, the participants of Cantine aperte will find a wine tasting in honour of the recurring number during the day al lover Italy. New wines and important Brunello Riserva, among which it is necessary to point out the Brunello Prime Donne, symbol of the estate, produced in a winery staffed only by women and chosen by a panel of women. Also the Riserva 2006 which has just obtained 93/100 awarded by the prestigious American wine magazine “Wine Advocate”
So what will be awaiting wine lovers in Donatella Cinelli Colombini’s winery will be a unique experience, even though the tasting will be limited to a maximum of 7 wines at a time (with always at least one Brunello Riserva available) in the logics of responsible consumption and in favour of tastings in other wineries too.
