Col d’Orcia Brunello di Montalcino Nastagio 2015
Col d’Orcia means the hill overlooking the Orcia River. The Orcia River marks the South West border of the Brunello di Montalcino territory and the name of the farm is intrinsically linked to the physical location were the vineyards are planted. It is the mission of Col d’Orcia to produce the best possible wines that the exceptional combination of soil and climate of this part of Montalcino can achieve. Since 2010 the whole estate is run following exclusively organic agricultural practices.
Brunello Nastagio is the result of the long experience accumulated by Col d'Orcia in the development and management of the Sangiovese vineyard. Nastagio is also the result of the many research chapters conducted over more than twenty years by Col d’Orcia with the University of Florence. The wine is aged in small barrels in the first year, and aged in large barrels in the second and third years - The result of the year aging in small barrels contributes towards obtaining a full, persistent and soft wine. In the second and third years of aging in the large barrels, the wine reaches the taste-aroma balance and produces fine and elegant tertiary elements, achieving an increase in the complexity and the exaltation of the typical aromas of Sangiovese.
Ruby red color with violet hues. The nose offers a broad, intense and elegant bouquet. The complex, sweet and ripe aromas are matched by notes of spices and vanilla. It is a wine with great power and longevity. Long and enveloping taste on the palate, the acidity blends perfectly with the tannic texture leading to a wonderful balance. The finish has great persistence and flavor.
