DescriptionCol d'Orcia is the internationally celebrated producer of one of Italy's most revered red wines, Brunello di Montalcino. Situated on the outskirts of the medieval hilltop village of Montalcino in Tuscany's Siena province, the estate has a rich winemaking history that dates back to the 1700s. In the hands of the Cinzano family since 1973, Col d'Orcia is owned and managed today by Count Francesco Marone Cinzano.
VinificationFermentation occurs on the skins for 8-10 days at carefully controlled temperatures below 78° F in order to preserve the intense and characteristic depth of the fruit. Early bottling ensures the preservation of the wine’s freshness.
