Natalie's Score: 94/100

Col d'Orcia 2017 Brunello di Montalcino is produced from low-yielding, certified organic Sangiovese wine grapes. From a warm vintage, the wine is dry, full-bodied, fresh and juicy despite this. Bright on the palate with ripe black cherry, pink florals, dried wild herbs, anise, clove and cinnamon spice flavours framed by firm and grippy tannins. Good now, better in 2024 with a bit of taming of those tannins.

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