Vintage 2019 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:
 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. 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 an perfect phenolic and technological maturity. 5 star vintage.
