Col dorcia Brunello di Montalcino
NOTE : You need a mix of any 6 bottles to checkout - we ship in multiples of 6 bottles with a 6 bottle minimum.
The colour is ruby red with violet hues. The bouquet is intense, broad and complex, with hints of red fruits such as cherry and blackberry combined with vanilla and woody notes from the oak. On the palate it is full-bodied wine, excellent structure, strong and balanced. The tannins are soft and ripe and lead to a long, endless and fruity aftertaste.
Col d’Orcia is a traditional producer of Brunello di Montalcino. The choice to continue using the large Slavonian oak barrels was taken many years ago, well before the debate between modernist and traditionalist producers even started. Tradition means respecting the essence of Sangiovese from Montalcino which is the aging potential and the improvement of the wine through its long passage in wood and the subsequent aging in the bottle. Still today, at Col d’Orcia, they age their Brunello di Montalcino for a full 3 years in the large barrels before bottling and keep the bottles in cellar at least 1 year before releasing the wine to the market.
