Donatella Cinelli Colombini in Toronto

Donatella Cinelli Colombini in Toronto, April 2015.

A dream come true…

Famed producer Donatella Cinelli Colombini, also known as “The Lady of Brunello” has just released a new wine called “IOsonoDONATELLA” (meaning “I am Donatella”) to celebrate the best wine she has made to date. Only 600 bottles were produced, and the allocation for all of Ontario is a mere 60 bottles. Needless to say, we don’t expect to have this wine for very long. The wine will leave Italy after the holidays, and is expected to arrive in Ontario late February, early March.

Donatella sent out the following press release a few days ago:
Dear friends,

Let me present you IOsonoDONATELLA, a dream come true: the best Brunello I have ever produced, and that contains everything about my life. It is the product of a lengthy job that began years ago, when with determination and courage, I began the path that has taken me to produce great wines. All of this is represented in the precious bottle with a shiny vortex of stars that leads to the gold leaf crest that I have chosen for my wines.

IOsonoDONATELLA is a masterpiece of a Brunello that will only be produced in great years. I have desired celebrating the 2010 vintage, highly acclaimed the whole world over, with a rare and precious wine studied in every detail, inside and out. You will be able to choose between two types of packaging, a single cardboard or wooden box will enclose in an elegant but traditional way this prestigious bottle.
From the beginning of December, you can follow the hashtag #iosonodonatella that will contain all the images of the wine and not only. We will be more than happy to accept all contributions connected to this name, as if to say to all the “Donatella” the world over “Let’s unite , the creator of the best image will receive a bottle of this precious Brunello. Only 600 bottles will be available, and these will be rationed among wine lovers all over the world. Christmas is near, so to book your bottles to give to your best clients. The girls are at your disposal but do be quick…it is a limited edition after all!

With my very best regards,
Donatella Cinelli Colombini
