Review
One of the true class acts in Italian wine, owner Francesco Marone Cinzano has calmly, quietly and capably turned Col d’Orcia into one of the most important and best wine estates of Montalcino. At 540 hectares, it is also one of the denomination’s largest; there are 142 hectares under vine, of which 102 hectares are planted to Sangiovese, located in the southwestern quadrant of the Montalcino denomination, between Sant’Angelo in Colle and Sant’Angelo Scalo. The estate is a quality leader in research, too, and has developed a number of Sangiovese clones thanks to the work of chief viticulturist Giuliano Dragoni in conjunction with the University of Florence. -From Brunello di Montalcino: Sleek ’13s, Surprising ’12 Riservas (Apr 2018) by Ian D’Agata
