    • Brunello di Montalcino DOCG 2013 (BIO)

      Brunello di Montalcino DOCG 2013 (BIO)

      Fine forest berry aroma, delicate notes of liquorice, coffee and spices. Dense and compact on the palate, acidity and tannins well balanced, in the finale notes of fresh cherries. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Medium red, barrel reducing, with aeration red fruity, dense, certain fruit, round, length, good tannin, long." Merum

      "The 2013 Brunello di Montalcino opens to a light garnet color and an elegant appearance. The bouquet is redolent of wild berry, cherry and red forest fruit. At the back, you get mild spice, cured tobacco and grilled rosemary. The effect is delicate and finessed. Yet the wine offers a long and polished mouthfeel with integrated tannins and acidity. These help to build power and length on the close." Robert Parker

      "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." James Suckling

      "Lustrous mid ruby with orange tinges. Compact nose. Supple cherry fruit with plenty of acidity and stalky tannins. Youthful." Jancis Robinson

      "Col d'Orcia has been farming its entire 520 hectares following organic practices since 2010, and 2013 marks the first year of organic certification for the wine. Significantly, the estate is the third largest producer in the region, producing 250,000 bottles of Brunello each year. Initially austere, the nose opens up to reveal red berries, pepper and violets. The palate offers similar restraint, with touches of leather and a minerality that builds on the finish. The resolute structure will carry it for at least a decade." Decanter

      "Bright red. Pomegranate and sour red cherry on the fresh, precise nose. Lively but dense in the mouth; peppery red cherry flavors are complicated by tobacco and underbrush nuances. Finishes long, with youthfully chewy tannins and a repeating spicy nuance. Made from organic grapes." Ian d’Agata (vinous.com)

    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
