Col d'Orcia (Cinzano) Col d'Orcia Brunello di Montalcino 2008
94 Point Wine Advocate: Sweet, rich, lush and layered, yet also remarkably light on its feet, the 2008 Brunello di Montalcino dazzles from start to finish. Sweet roses, red berries, flowers, mint and orange peel all take an appearance in this utterly impeccable polished Brunello. I imagine the 2008 will still be a special wine at age 30. The aromas are naturally still quite primary, so some cellaring is advisable. The brutal August hailstorm took with it a full 40% of the production, but left behind a strikingly beautiful Brunello endowed with seemingly endless layers of fruit and fabulous overall balance.

Great vineyard. Exceptional value at $42. Purchased now to serve at my daughter's 2015 wedding.

This Brunello, although very young, is extremely smooth and enjoyable. In years to come, if you can keep a few bottles in your inventory, this will become an exceptional bottle of wine!

Notes on the Col d'Orcia Brunello di Montalcino 750ML 2008

Wine Maker Notes Manual harvest with rigorous selection of the best bunches in the vineyard and subsequently further hand selection on a sorting table in the cellar. Maximum yield allowed by the Production Regulation is 80 q/ha. Avg. Col d’Orcia Brunello yield: 61 q/ha.Fermented on the skins for about 18-20 days at a controlled temperature of less than 86ºF in 150hl wide and shallow stainless steel tanks designed and built in order to extract tannin and color efficiently but delicately.

Technical Notes When all is said and done, Col d'Orcia might have produced not just one of the wines of the 2008 vintage, but possibly two. Proprietor Francesco Marone Cinzano and his team, led by long-time estate manager Edoardo Virano, have done a magnificent job with these wines, the Brunellos in particular. Like many estates in this part of the region, Col d'Orcia was hammered by the August 15 hailstorm. Yields were down by a whopping 40%. What the estate lost in production is compensated with the superb quality of the wines. During my visit, I also tasted a vertical of the estate-s Moscadello, a first for me. In the best vintages, the Moscadello can age two decades, although whether or not the wine improves with bottle age is a matter of personal preference. Mine is to drink the wine either upon release or after it is 20 years old.

Food Pairing An ideal companion to red meat entrées, hearty stews and assorted cheeses.
