Col d'Orcia Brunello di Montalcino 2010

Col d'Orcia Brunello di Montalcino 750ml 2010     
Sku: 16275

Located in southern Montalcino in the area of Sant Angelo in Colle. The vines enjoy a favorable southern exposure granting the vineyards with the blessing of the sun rays the whole day long. Average height is about 1000 ft above sea level.

Rating
The 2010 Brunello di Montalcino is surprisingly subdued on first nose and a little unsteady on its feet at this young stage. Give it time and the wine gracefully brings out a long chorus line of aromas that hit the high notes and well and the low ones in slow increments. The bouquet is redolent of small forest berry, white ash, smoke, licorice, balsam herb and delicate spice. It’s important to underline the extremely elegant and feminine personality of this wine. This Brunello has no place to go but up in terms of its complexity and evolution. Put it aside for at least five more years before popping the cork..Monica Larner, February/2015

Wine maker notes
Manual harvest with rigorous selection of the best bunches in the vineyard and subsequently further hand selection on a sorting table in the cellar. Maximum yield allowed by the Production Regulation is 80 q/ha. Avg. Col d’Orcia Brunello yield: 61 q/ha. Fermented on the skins for about 18-20 days at a controlled temperature of less than 86ºF in 150hl wide and shallow stainless steel tanks designed and built in order to extract tannin and color efficiently but delicately.
