Col d'Orcia - Brunello di Montalcino 2016

IN STOCK

Col d’Orcia is one of the oldest established wineries of Montalcino and is very much part of the history of Brunello. They've always been committed to the natural environment in which they operate. For this reason in the year 2010 they 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.

Eric Guido - Vinous: "Dusty earth gives way to dried roses, incense, hints of cedar, sage, currants and black cherries in a display that makes the 2016 Col d'Orcia Brunello di Montalcino a very special experience. It’s nuanced and perfumed from start to finish, boasting silky textures contrasted by tart berries and minerals, but with sweet tannins that frame the expression perfectly. Its inner sweetness is balanced by bright acids, creating an almost-juicy sensation, right up until the moment you realize that your palate is aching with youthful tension. There’s so much going on and much more to come, making me wonder what the Poggio al Vento might offer in the 2016 vintage. For now, that doesn’t even matter, because the 2016 Col d'Orcia impresses on nearly every level".

An easy to drink, crowd pleaser Brunello that always delivers. A great value in the entry level range.
