Banditella Rosso di Montalcino Doc. Col d'Orcia 2006

Member Review by zeptogator:

The 2006 Banditella Rosso di Montalcino is like a 19 year old farm girl...maturing but not quite at her peak, supple and easy, lacking real complexity but spicy and satisfying nonetheless. One can't help but stare at her beauty, admire her strong alluring legs, and breathe in her aura. I'll be back for more.

The Col D’Orcia estate is one of the oldest companies of Montalcino, being present in 1933 with the name “Fattoria di Sant’Angelo in Colle” at the First Exhibition of Italian wines held in Siena, with three vintages of Brunello. The origin of the estate dates back to the first half of the XVIII century when the noble family Delle Ciaia of Siena established an estate in the area of Sant’Angelo in Colle which increased year by year. In the second half of the nineteenth century the ownership was passed to the Servadio family and subsequently to the Franceschi family. In 1973 Count Alberto Marone Cinzano took over the company, with the aim to contribute to the development and success of Montalcino and its Brunello on world markets. From 1977 the company has been under the direction of Edoardo Virano and from 1992 the Col D’Orcia estate is presided over by Count Francesco Marone Cinzano. Read less

Medium-deep red. Highly perfumed aromas of red cherry, redcurrant, rose and lavender. Enters the mouth broad and supple, offering ripe red fruit flavors and hints of tobacco and minerals nicely lifted by sound acids and ultra-smooth tannins. Finishes very long and pure. Another baby Brunello and an absolute standout, lacking only the complexity of the very best Brunellos. In fact, at the moment this is a much more successful wine than the estate's 2004 Brunello. This year Col d'Orcia parted ways with their longtime winemaker Pablo Harri, and consulting winemaker Maurizio Castelli has taken on a more active role. Clean and pleasant, with berries, flowers and a hint of oak. Medium-bodied, with focused fruit and firm texture. Drink now. 2,000 cases made. -JS
