“Delicate, elegant style. Charms sneak up on you. Not overt, graceful and long.”
James Suckling 94
“The deep, rich red-plum nose sucks you into this powerful Brunello that has great fruit and polished, dry tannins that are beautifully in synch. Long, intense and rather complex finish. A great food wine for tonight, but this has the structure to hold for up to a decade.”
Wine Enthusiast 93
“Earthy aromas of underbrush, tobacco leaf and grilled porcini lead the nose. The full-bodied linear palate evokes wild cherry, pomegranate and ground clove set against tightly knit tannins and fresh acidity. Drink from 2021 through 2033.”
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.
