Natalie's Score: 91/100

The Sangiovese wine grapes for Col D'orcia 2013 were grown 300 metres above sea level and are hand-harvested with controlled yields of 46 q/ha (maximum allowed 80q/ha). Deep red in the glass, this is a full-bodied and intense Brunello Di Montalcino with lip-smacking sour cherry, earthy dried herbs and spicy flavours on the palate. Enjoy with meaty stews.

Brunello Di Montalcino food pairings: roast pork, venison stew, lamburgers.

Reviews and Ratings

Col D'orcia 2013 is a deep red, full-bodied and intense Brunello Di Montalcino from the Tuscany Wine Region. The Sangiovese wine grapes for this wine were grown 300 metres above sea level and are hand-harvested and the 2013 yield was 46 q/ha (maximum allowed 80q/ha). Wine grapes were fermented in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks for 18 days and the wine is aged a total of four years with three years in Slovenia and Allier oak barrels. Look for ripe red berry and oak spice flavours on the palate. Tannins are ripe and soft. Very approachable now. Enjoy with meaty stews. - Community Wine Reviews

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
