Col d'Orcia Brunello di Montalcino 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

2006 is proving to be a show-stopping vintage from Montalcino. Wine Spectator's initial overall vintage review for the region has been: "Complex and powerful wines that impress with ripe yet fresh fruit and firm yet silky tannins...93-96 Points" www.winespectator.com __________________________________________________________________________ Col d'Orcia Brunello 2004 was rated 92WA! The 2006 supposed to be similar to the 1997! James Suckling My Blog: First Impressions of 2006 Brunello January 6th, 2011 (IL BORRO, ITALY, JAN. 6, 2011) "I am finishing my blind tasting of 2006 Brunello di Montalcino today at home in Tuscany, and I am very excited about the vintage. The wines are subtle, yet rich, structured, and powerful. This vintage is the new benchmark for the region — a modern 1997."

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

Deep ruby red. Complex and fresh, with inviting fruit aromas balanced by oak-imparted spices. Well-structured and full-bodied, with fine tannins that promise great aging capacity; long and impressive finish.
