The richness and refinement of a Brunello di Montalcino wine

The estate

Col d'Orcia is one of the oldest wineries in the village of Montalcino and a reference point among fine Tuscan wines.

The estate takes its name from its position overlooking the river Orcia. Acquired by the Franceschi family in 1890, the property belonged to the Cinzano family in 1973, who greatly expanded the vineyard to 144 hectares, making it one of the largest areas of the Brunello appellation in Montalcino.

The vineyard

This 2017 vintage by Col D'Orcia is a Brunello di Montalcino wine that stems from vineyards located on the Sant'Angelo hill, a few kilometres from Siena. This south/southwest facing terroir is situated at an altitude of 300 metres.

The vintage

The 2017 vintage was marked by scorching conditions. The drop in temperature following a stormy episode on 13 August was beneficial for the vineyard and ensured the gradual ripening of the grapes.

Vinification and ageing

Harvested by hand, the grapes are rigorously selected in the cellar. Fermentation for 18 to 20 days in stainless steel vats. The wine is aged for three years in Slavonian and Allier oak barrels, followed by at least 12 months of bottle ageing before being released.

The blend

Sangiovese (100%).
