Rosso di Montalcino DOC

Rosso di Montalcino DOC

Vintage 2013 Organic


Production area:
Col d’Orcia own vineyard, located in Montalcino, on the hill overlooking the Orcia River, facing south. Average height above sea level of 250 meters

Weather conditions:
A good rainy winter restored the humidity soil level after the droughty 2012. Budding and flowering took place during the typical periods of recent years and a regular summer weather was in line with the "traditional" vintage of the past. The harvest of the Sangiovese began on the third week of September helped by timely rains and temperature changes.

Sangiovese, locally called "Brunello" (the same variety used in the production of Brunello di Montalcino).

Fermentation on grape skins for about 10 - 12 days at controlled temperature below 28° C in shallow, wide steel tanks (150 hl), in order to obtain a delicate tannin and colour extraction.

12 months in Slavonian oak casks between 75 and 150 hl, followed by refinement in bottle.

Main Features

Deep ruby red with violet hues.

Fruity, ample and complex with typical notes of red ripe fruits combined with the oak scents originated by ageing in barrels.
