The rampant lion is the symbol of the ancestors of Donatella Cinelli Colombini who built the Fattoria del Colle in 1592. The Leone Rosso Orcia DOC is produced with the grapes of the Sangiovese and Merlot vineyards around the ancient buildings of the farm. The color is intense and brilliant ruby red. The perfume is fine, rich, complex even in the fragrant vinosity enriched with hints of red fruits. The taste is medium-bodied, with soft tannins and an excellent balance with fruit and alcohol. Leone Rosso Orcia DOC is a very versatile wine suitable for any meal; it goes wonderfully with seasoned meats and cheeses.
A history of six centuries, where the lives of heretics, jurists, churchmen and winemakers are intertwined. Great people, great passions and great wines in the countryside south of Siena, one of the most beautiful territories in the world that keeps alive its most ancient traditions.
In 2001 and 2002 Donatella Cinelli Colombini's cellars were inaugurated at Fattoria del Colle and Casato Prime Donne.
The 34 hectares of vineyard of the company are almost entirely replanted and a sales network is born that exports the wine in 38 countries around the world.
