Wine Advocate 91
“Flows with a vibrant core of perfumed red cherries, spices, tobacco and earthiness. Medium in body, the wine reveals outstanding length and a polished, refined finish … Col d’Orcia, one of Montalcino’s historic properties, is located in Sant’Angelo in Colle in the southern part of the appellation.”~AG
International Wine Cellar 91
“Good deep, bright red. Complex, varietally expressive aromas of redcurrant, dried flowers, tobacco and sweet spices. Supple, broad and very light on its feet, with some spicy oak complicating the flavors of red cherry, tar and licorice. A silky-sweet mid-weight with harmonious acidity and subtle notes of flowers and graphite on the back. This excellent Brunello boasts sneaky concentration and impeccable balance.”~ID

“An improvement over past vintages, thanks to the elegance of its fruit and the richness of its consistency. The wine is bursting with cherry and cassis flavors and it shows harmony and a firm, streamlined nature to its mouthfeel.”~ML
Col d'OrciaView all from Col d'Orcia
Col d'Orcia literally means the hill overlooking the Orcia River. The Orcia River marks the South West border of the Brunello di Montalcino territory and the name of the farm is intrinsically linked to the physical location were the vineyards are planted. It is the mission of Col d'Orcia to produce the best possible wines that the exceptional combination of soil and climate of this part of Montalcino can achieve.
At Col d'Orcia, for many years now, we have always ascribed high value to the natural environment in which we operate.
For this reason in the year 2010 we took the decision of submitting to the organic farming certification process in order to become the largest organic wine producing farm in the whole of Tuscany. Since August 27, 2010 the whole estate including vineyards, olive groves, other fields and even the gardens are farmed following exclusively organic agricultural practices.
We are very proud of this achievement and we can rightfully define Col d'Orcia as an organic island in Montalcino.
