Col d'orcia Brunello di Montalcino
Montalcino – Siena – Sant’Angelo in Colle. South facing hillside slopes of Eocene origin enjoying a favourable sunny exposure all day long. Average height 300 m. above sea level. Optimal climate conditions, good rainfall in spring, hot and dry summer with regular temperatures. The weather was ideal in September with pleasant temperatures during the day and fresh during the night. The maturation evolved perfectly.
Aging: 4 years, 3 of which in 25-50 and 75 hl oak casks from Slavonia and Allier followed by at least 12 months of refinement in bottles placed in storage at controlled temperature.
Alcohol: 14,5% vol.
Total Acidity: 5.7 g/l
Colour: Ruby with violet hues.
Aroma: Intense, full-bodied and elegant with fruity notes of ripe
blackberry and raspberry typical of Sangiovese. Well
combined with the species and with the woody scents
originating from the long ageing in the barrels.
Palate: Highly structured wine, full and persistent.
The ripe soft tannins are perfectly balanced with the
acidity, long pleasant and sapid aftertaste.
The Banditella vineyard, planted in 1988 with the clones of Sangiovese selected among Col d’Orcia clones over the past 10 years, provides the basis for one of the most excellent expressions of Brunello di Montalcino. Manual harvest with rigorous selection of the bunches.
