Notes on the Col d'Orcia Rosso di Montalcino 750ML 2010

Wine Maker Notes Grapes ferment on the skins for twelve days at a controlled temperature of less than 82ºF (28ºC) in shallow, wide steel tanks (150 hl), in order to obtain a delicate tannin and color extraction.

Wine Review Restaurant Wine Issue #137 & #138 4+ Stars Rosso di Montepulciano 2008 - 4+ stars, Restaurant Wine------------------------------------------Col d’Orcia is producing truly wonderful wines...The standard bottling is full bodied and medium rich; a wine with intensefruitiness (blackberry, strawberry jam, red currant), and modest toast andspicy oak character. Well balanced and long on the finish, with a hint oftannin. Great value...------------------------------------------ Wine Advocate April 27, 2010 88 Points Rosso di Montalcino DOC - 88 Points, Wine Advocate ------------------------------------------...The 2008 Rosso di Montalcino is plump, juicy and generous in its floral red fruit...Col d'Orcia, one of Montalcino's historic properties, is located in Sant'Angelo in Colle in the southern part of the appellation.------------------------------------------ Parker's Wine Bargains 2010 Rosso di Montalcino - A Best Value, Parker's Wine Bargains------------------------------------------A fresh, vinous rosso with pretty, ripe red fruit and an accessible personality from one of Montalcino's leading estates.------------------------------------------ International Wine Cellar October 2009 89+ Points Rosso di Montalcino 2007------------------------------------------Good saturated dark red. Complex nose melds very ripe red cherry, plum, herbs and a hint of earth, all lifted by oak spice and a peppery nuance. At once fat and juicy, this suave, stylish wine shows a lush texture and deep flavors of red and black fruits. Persistent and perfumed on the very long, peppery finish. This wine will undoubtedly gain complexity and depth with another six months, though it's such an enjoyably sweet fruit bomb you may not want to defer gratification. Extremely well done for an entry-level Rosso.------------------------------------------ Wine Advocate June 2009 87-89 Points Rosso di Montalcino 2007 - 87-89 Points, Wine Advocate------------------------------------------The 2007 Rosso di Montalcino is an intense, deep wine with an expansive core of dark fruit. The generous quality of the vintage is on full display in this big Rosso. Anticipated maturity: 2009-2012. Proprietor Francesco Marone Cinzano makes powerful wines imbued with notable pedigree from his extensive holdings in the southern reaches of Montalcino.------------------------------------------ Wine Advocate August 31, 2008 88 Points *Col d'Orcia Multi-Review Flier - Wine Advocate------------------------------------------Col d'Orcia is one of Montalcino's historic properties. The 2006 Rosso di Montalcino is a fresh, vinous Rosso with pretty ripe red fruit and an accessible personality. It is best consumed over the next year or two.------------------------------------------ Wine Advocate April 30, 2008 88 Points ------------------------------------------Rosso di Montalcino is a fresh, vinous Rosso with pretty ripe red fruit and an accessible personality. It is best consumed over the next year or two.------------------------------------------ Wine Advocate Issue 176 88 Points ------------------------------------------In addition to making wines at his estate Col d'Orcia proprietor Count FrancescoMarone Cinzano is also the newly appointed President of the Consorzio del Vino Brunello di Montalcino. Cinzano cuts a dashing figure and his diplomatic, aristocratic background seems to be a perfect fit for leading the producers' consortium through the challenges it faces today. Col d'Orcia's 2006 Rosso di Montalclno is a fresh, vinous Rosso with pretty ripe red fruit and an accessible personality. It is best consumed over the next year or two.------------------------------------------ Wine & Spirits October 2007 89 Points ------------------------------------------Bosky scents of woodland cherries last straight through this wine, a crisp, clean line of flavor that won't get in the way of most anything for dinner, from grilled chicken to roast beef. Fresh and lovely.------------------------------------------ Wine Advocate December 26, 2006 87 Points ------------------------------------------Col d'Orcia's 2004 Rosso di Montalcino is a simple, accessible Rosso to enjoy now and over the next 2-3 years. Fresh and vinous, it offers generous, ripe fruit on a medium-bodied frame with excellent overall balance. Anticipated maturity: 2006-2009.------------------------------------------ Wine News October/November 2006 90 Points ------------------------------------------Reluctant aromas of cherry blossom, wood spice and violets. Flavors of strawberry jam and bittersweet chocolate have very good balance, and gripping, though not painful tannins. Sweet-tart finish. ------------------------------------------ Wine Review Online October 11, 2006 94 Points ------------------------------------------The infamous heat in Europe during the summer of 2003 makes selecting wines from that vintage hazardous. Some winemakers wound up with overextracted, tannic, unbalanced wines while others make glorious ones. Put this wine in the latter category. Extraordinary length and complexity, coupled with lip smacking acidity, make this easy to recommend highly. One of the best Rosso di Montalcino I've tasted!------------------------------------------ Vinography: A Wine Blog January 25, 2006 8/8.5 The Best of Brunello: Thoughts on the 2001 Vintage------------------------------------------ Italian Cooking & Living November 2005 Cellar Selections------------------------------------------Solely Sangiovese Grosso grapes, this Tuscan wine is dark ruby with purple hues. Scents of black cherry and anise lead to a supple palate of fruit and spice. Less intense than Brunello, but just as good.------------------------------------------ Bon Appetit October 15, 2005 10 Wines Under $20------------------------------------------Great bottles needn't break the bank. Of the more than 1,200 wines in the under-$20 price range we've sampled during the past year, these widely available selections represent some of the best values.Pure Sangiovese with black-raspberry fruit, from an estate owned by the Cinzano family.------------------------------------------ Decanter August 2005 **** Mighty Montalcino - Best Values------------------------------------------It's hard to talk about economies where Brunello is concerned, since its price range runs from high in a normal year to higher in a better year.A consumer's best hope lies with Rosso di Montalcino. Brunello vineyards can also be used for Rosso - so in a hot, difficult year such as 2003, a lot of first-rate vineyards surrendered their grapes to Rosso. [One] of the best Rossos of the 2003 vintage.------------------------------------------ Decanter August 2005 **** Best Values------------------------------------------Complex nose of tea, tab, tobacco, black cherry.------------------------------------------ Wine Enthusiast April 2005 87 Points Buying Guide------------------------------------------The 2001 Rosso di Montalcino begins with scents of red berries and cherries, then adds chocolate, leather and herb complexity on the palate. Tannins are well-rounded, while the acidity is fresh, making this wine a delight to drink over the short term.------------------------------------------
