Brunello di Montalcino DOCG Col d'Orcia

Vintage 2019 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:
Mild winter with low temperatures in January followed by rains in in the second half of February. Cool and rainy spring. June and July were sunny with just one relevant rainstorm. In August the temperatures were in the seasonal average. Thanks to the abundant water reserves and the lack of extreme heat, the foliage remained efficient all season long. All this resulted in a slow homogenous ripening of the grapes excellent for obtaining a perfect phenolic and technological maturity. 
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 2019 yield: 69 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, 32 mounths 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.
