The 2011 Brunello di Montalcino is a gorgeous wine for the vintage. Sweet red cherry, plum, iron, wild flowers and mint flesh out. A supple, generous and inviting wine, this radiant, expressive Brunello should drink well for another 15-20 years. Col d'Orcia's 2011 is one of the best Brunellos of the year. The 2011 spent three full years in cask.
The Wine Advocate
Streamlined and tight, the 2011 Brunello di Montalcino shows a tight fabric, bright berry aromas and a touch of sour cherry on the finish. Col d'Orcia is a winery in a unique position. Because a good part of the vineyards are located on the lower, southern side of the Montalcino appellation, fruit ripens faster and shows bolder characteristics. At the same time, the house style is classic and unembellished. These two factors don't normally jive together, but this estate does a great job of making sure they do, thanks to rigorous green harvesting and fruit selection. The bouquet is redolent of wild berries, white cherry, dried raspberry and spice. At the back, you'll find delicate tones of cola and rosemary. Drink 2017-2028.
