Part of a library release from the estate, this spectacular vintage comes with bottle age and the added benefit of cellar provenance.
The Col d'Orcia vineyards have been fully certified in organic farming from the 2013 vintage.
"Here I find a gorgeous and intense display, mixing savory and sweet, as well as, earth and fruit, as dusty cedar and spice give way to ripe strawberry with a hint of citrus, with wild herbs and a hint of animal musk adding further depths. On the palate, silky textures meld into woodland red berry fruits, zesty spice, hints of cedar, savory herbs, saline minerals, and mounting tannins. The finish is long and structured, yet there remains enough primary fruit to balance it all out, as well as resonating acids, intriguing hints of citrus, and spice. This is remarkably balanced, singing already, yet it’s full of potential for the cellar." 94 points, Vinous
"This combines the best characteristics of Sangiovese, with cherry and strawberry fruit, earth, leather and iron notes and balsamic elements of wild thyme, rosemary and Mediterranean scrub. Shows a bit of heat on the finish, yet remains fresh and long." 94 points, Wine Spectator
"The Col d'Orcia 2015 Brunello di Montalcino (made with organic fruit) has a very distinctive aromatic profile with subtle hints of rusty iron and moist potting soil. However, this wine also shows an impressive evolution in the glass with those earthy and sanguine notes lifting to reveal sweet oak tones of vanilla and baking spice that remain pronounced in a second underlayer. To me, Col d'Orcia's wines are almost always characterized by a medicinal or balsamic element, and the primary fruit is downplayed as a result. This vintage puts on a good show with wild berry, blackcurrant and dried blackberry. That said, this wine is more ethereal and spicy than it is fruity per se." 93 points, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
"Quite flinty and reductive at first, a vigorous swirl releases scented herb, Mediterranean shrub and dry earth on a warm summer day. Despite being fully charged with fruit and tannin, it offers nice tension with appetising acidity. This needs a couple of years to come around and will age well for at least a decade after that - possibly more. Col d'Orcia has one of the most extensive library cellars in the region. Having tried a number of these older bottles, I can confidently say that they stand the test of time in diverse vintage conditions." 92 points, Decanter
