Col d’Orcia Brunello di Montalcino 2015
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, we age our 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. The fruit comes from the hill overlooking the Orcia River, facing South-South/West and exposed to sun all day long.
Ruby red with violet hues. The nose is complex and elegant, with red fruity notes like cherry and sour cherry and spicy aromas. Balanced and structured with pleasantly ripe tannins. The finish is long, fruity and lasting.
