Brunello di Montalcino DOCG Col d'Orcia

Brunello di Montalcino DOCG Col d'Orcia

Vintage 2017 Organic


Production area:
Montalcino – Siena – the hill overlooking the Orcia River, facing South-South/West and exposed to sunrays all day long. Average height 300 m. above sea level.

Weather conditions:
 The 2017 season saw the coming together of the two main climatic change phenomenon: drought and heat wave. Rain was almost totally absent already from the end of 2016 and temperatures in the summer were rather high. A rainstorm on August 13 and the ensuing lower temperatures at night, allowed the vineyard to ripen the limited production, delivering very healthy grapes with considerable complexity in terms of aromas, elegant tannins and excellent natural acidity.
Particular clones of Sangiovese, selected by Col d’Orcia. Manual harvest with rigorous selection of the best bunches in the vineyard at first and subsequently on a selection table in the cellar. Vintage 2016 yield: 65 q/ha, against the maximum yield allowed by the Protocol Regulation: 80 q/ha.
Fermentation on the skins for about 18-20 days, at controlled temperature below 28° C. in 150 hl wide and shallow stainless steel tanks, designed and built in order to extract tannins and colour efficiently but delicately.

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.
