2014 Tenuta Col d'Orcia Brunello di Montalcino DOCG, Tuscany, Italy (750ml)
Ruby red with garnet reflections. Ample and complex bouquet, characterized by fruity notes that blend with the balsamic and spicy scents. It has a good structure with important tannins and one pleasant acid freshness. Sapid aftertaste and pleasantly fruity.
The 2014 Brunello di Montalcino opens to a ripe and dark quality of fruit. These tones underline the slightly warmer growing conditions present on the southern side of the appellation where Col d'Orcia is located. That extra warmth is an important factor especially in a cool and soggy vintage such as 2014. This wine appears to have suffered less compared to its peers. The bouquet is layered with rich aromas of cured meat, spicy tobacco and moist potting soil that add to the weight and gravitas of the wine. This Brunello is compact and mid-weight in terms of texture. Some 200,000 bottles were produced.

Aromas of plums, flower and hints of asphalt follow through to a medium body, juicy and savory fruit and a flavorful finish. From organically grown grapes.
