      “Banditella” Rosso di Montalcino DOC 2016 (BIO)

      A modern red with a complex bouquet of spices, dark berries and cherries, rich, juicy, compact and beautifully balanced and long on the palate. SUPERIORE.DE

      "The 2016 Rosso di Montalcino Banditella is gorgeous. A burst of dark cherry, plum, lavender, spice, mint, new leather and a hint of oak rushes across the palate as this bold, flavorful Rosso shows off its racy personality. Exuberant, deep and full of character, the 2016 will drink well for another handful of years." Vinous

      "A firm, savory red with cherry, berry, cedar and chocolate aromas and flavors. Full body. Round tannins. Flavorful finish. From organically grown grapes." James Suckling

    • Brunello di Montalcino DOCG 2015 (BIO)

      Brunello di Montalcino DOCG 2015 (BIO)

      Bright red with ruby reflections. Aromas of rose petals, small red berries, some mint. On the palate clear, beautiful and complex primary fruit, the tannins smooth and elegant. A medium-weight, but therefore not at all less attractive Brunello with a freshness and overall balance that makes it a remarkable, independent part of the favourites in the excellent year 2015! SUPERIORE.DE

      "Sparkling, intense ruby garnet. Opened in the nose with notes of cranberries and goji berries, some saffron, juicy cherry. Hearty, gripping tannin on the palate, gripping, shows emphatically earthy notes, still looks very young. Falstaff

      "Tasted blind. Lustrous mid ruby. Quite closed and a little savoury on the nose. Supple and gentle fruit on the palate and still a little shy. Finely sculpted tannins on the finish." Jancis Robinson

      "Deep red. Forward aromas of tobacco, sweet spices and ripe red cherry on the very inviting nose. Supple, with graceful and polished red fruit and herb flavors that are nicely creamy but lively on the long, expressive finish." Vinous

      "The Col d'Orcia 2015 Brunello di Montalcino (made with organic fruit) has a very distinctive aromatic profile with subtle hints of rusty iron and moist potting soil. However, this wine also shows an impressive evolution in the glass with those earthy and sanguine notes lifting to reveal sweet oak tones of vanilla and baking spice that remain pronounced in a second underlayer. To me, Col d'Orcia's wines are almost always characterized by a medicinal or balsamic element, and the primary fruit is downplayed as a result. This vintage puts on a good show with wild berry, blackcurrant and dried blackberry. That said, this wine is more ethereal and spicy than it is fruity per se." Robert Parker

      "This combines the best characteristics of Sangiovese, with cherry and strawberry fruit, earth, leather and iron notes and balsamic elements of wild thyme, rosemary and Mediterranean scrub. Shows a bit of heat on the finish, yet remains fresh and long. Best from 2023 through 2042." Wine Spectator

    • Brunello di Montalcino "Poggio al Vento" Riserva DOCG 2013 (BIO)

      Brunello di Montalcino “Poggio al Vento” Riserva DOCG 2013 (BIO)

      Delicate garnet reflexes enliven the classic ruby, and the bouquet combines aromas of ripe cherries with notes reminiscent of tobacco and medicinal herbs to create a complex harmony. The taste, interspersed with flawlessly fine tannins, gains an almost sensational fullness in the course of time and is supported by a good acid component. A Riserva like from a picture book. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Sparkling, intense garnet red. Very inviting and intense nose of cranberries and pomegranate, some saffron, juicy, fresh cherry. Pithy, very well placed tannin on the palate, fine sweet melt, echoes for a long time, very juicy, has potential for many years". Falstaff

      "Broad shouldered and firmly structured with expressive aromas and flavors of red cherry, flint, blackberry reduction and underbrush. Finishes very long and saline; strikes me as one of the more refined, lightweight versions of Poggio al Vento in years. Lovely wine, and commendably, very much in style of the vintage. I expect this to improve considerably in the years to come: well done." Vinous

      "The 2013 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva Poggio al Vento sets this venerable Riserva program squarely back on track thanks to its balanced intensity and classic lines. Like in the other Sangiovese-based wines from this historic Montalcino estate, this wine is distinguished by those estate-specific savory and sanguine notes that recall rusty nail or iron, all followed by balsam herb, powdered licorice and even a touch of eucalyptus oil. The wine's texture is medium in weight and ultimately this expression is more buoyant in mouthfeel than you might initially expect of a wine that has aged for this long." Robert Parker

    About the winemakers
    Col d'Orcia
    Tuscany | Montalcino
    Col d'Orcia

    The Tenuta Col d'Orcia in the village of Sant'Angelo is not only one of the most cultivated wineries in Montalcino, but Brunello and Rosso di Montalcino also enjoy increasing demand with an 80 percent share of turnover. Chianti, olive oil, grappa and even a Moscadello di Montalcino are also produced. The estate, which covers around 530 hectares and whose origins date back to at least 1890, has 142 hectares of vineyards spread over several areas of origin. Of these, almost 110 hectares are planted with Brunello. Among them is Poggio Al Vento, one of the most excellent sites, from which the Riserva of the same name originates. The vineyards of the Tenuta Col d'Almost all Orcia are located on the south-eastern slope of the Monte Amiata cultivation zone. Powerful and long-lasting plants thrive there, which are pleasing due to their pleasant acidity.

    Part of the premises for winemaking, which are equipped with functional and state-of-the-art technology, is an ageing hall in which barrels of various sizes are stored. Fermentation takes place in temperature-controlled steel tanks. The noble plants of the Tenuta Col d are being developed.'Orcia in Slavonian oak and Allier oak barrels.

    The winery, which has been owned by the Marone Cinzano family since 1973, has been managed for several decades by Edoardo Virano, a very competent manager. The change of ownership at that time brought about a great upswing in the production of wines that had until then been little known outside the region. About 80 percent of the production is exported to 70 countries today. The annual turnover of Tenuta Col d'Orcia is around 5.5 million euros.

    Count Francesco Marone Cinzano sees the future of the wines in the ecological orientation. The owners of the estate, who pay a lot of attention to the traditional wine culture, have switched to biodynamic cultivation in 2010 and, according to their own information, are the largest winery in Tuscany in this respect. In the future, the family will continue to devote itself to long-ripened wines and offer light and modern wines at the same time. SUPERIORE.DE

    "Recently some production protocols have changed, which now aim at a particularly conscientious selection of raw materials. The Brunello of the year has profited greatly from this."Gambero Rosso
