In 1592 Donatella Cinelli Colombini's ancestors had begun to build Fattoria del Colle in Trequanda and were already paying taxes for the cultivation of Casato in Montalcino. These early forebears took part in religious disputes and consequently lost all of their properties. Three hundred years later, Fattoria del Colle returned to the family in 1919 thanks to Donatella's great-grandfather.The Montalcino ancestors always passed down the estate, mostly from mother to daughter. Indeed, for the past three generations,this property has been handed on from female to female. Donatella,too, will give Casato to her daughter Violante.
