Brunello di Montalcino DOCG Magnum Col D'Orcia
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.
It shows a beautiful ruby-red colour with violet hues. Bouquet: Ample, complex with huge notes of ripe red berry fruits, and plum well balanced with the spice from the oak. Well-structured state, with soft ripe tannins perfectly balanced with the notes originating from the long ageing in the wood. Full and persistent aftertaste.
