Description Sub Region Producer Notes
 
Like the benchmark 2006 vintage, 2010 saw a return to classic Montalcino growing season; warm but not hot, dry but not sere, and this ’10 Col d'Orcia Brunello bursts with notes of dried red fruit, tobacco, underbrush, leather, and mint, all laid upon a framework of silky tannins, balsamic undertones, tar and spice. Classic, intense, layered and focused, the ’10 Col d’Orcia Brunello di Montalcino strikes a balance between its juicy red fruits and its savory notes of Montalcino terroir. Col d'Orcia Brunello derives from vineyards that boast albarese soil, but its slopes also hold a high percentage of calcium, which makes the vineyard exceptionally acidic and prime for growing piquant grapes. This wine is powerful and concentrated, and it offers a tremendous mouth-feel and a lingering finish; while approachable now with decanting, this ’10 Brunello will be even more enjoyable in five or ten years.
