Excellent with level into the neck. the label is slightly damaged as shown (this is the actual bottle), though all details are clearly legible.
Col d’Orcia literally means the hill overlooking the Orcia River. The Orcia River marks the South West border of the Brunello di Montalcino area and the name of the winery is intrinsically linked to the actual location where the vineyards are planted. It is Col d’Orcia's mission to produce the best possible wines that the exceptional combination of soil and climate in this part of Montalcino can achieve.
Montalcino itself is located about 80k south of Florence and has been synonamous with the production of wine since the 14th century. The Rosso di Montalcino DOC (Denominazione di Origine Controllata) was established in 1984 as a means of giving Brunello di Montalcino producers the flexibility to continue the tradition of long aging of the region's flagship wine. The wine is made the same delineated region as Brunello di Montalcino. However, it is only required to spend six months aging in oak and one year of total aging before release.
This is our only bottle of this wine from this iconic region. Notwithstanding the label, the wine looks to be in great condition.
