Rosso di Montalcino DOC
Rosso di Montalcino is now a classic wine, made with pure Sangiovese grapes, released one year after the harvest so as to retain all the freshness and fruitiness of a young wine and at the same time the intensity that only the Montalcino terroir is capable of delivering.

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.
Winter was rather dry with low temperatures in January and February. Spring rains, within the seasonal average, provided the water reserve necessary for the months of July and August. September was temperate with good day/night temperature excursions allowing a perfect ripeness of the grapes.
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 preserve a fresh and long-living fruit.
12 months in Slavonian oak casks between 75 and 150 hl, followed by refinement in bottle.
Deep ruby red with violet hues.
Ample and fruity with typical notes of small red ripe fruits, blackberry and cherry, well balanced with the oak spices.
Good structure, soft and pleasant tannins. The aftertaste is long, persistent and fruity.
